April was #AutismAwarenessMonth and this week’s Challenge is designed to keep the conversation going and growing. @dreamboxeducation works to celebrate the potential and ability of autistic individuals by empowering them and their support networks; parents, carers, teachers and support workers through creating accessible and stimulating environments for creative conversation and tools.
The butterfly detail in the DreamBox Education logo symbolises transformation, and recognises that a supportive network celebrates ability and enables growth. Many autistic children and adults have a great eye for detail, which can help with problem solving and finding solutions. For example, developmental psychologist Uta Frith found that many autistic children are exceptionally good at finding Wally from the Where’s Wally? picture books quickly! Inspired by this, DreamBox Education challenge us to find the beauty in the detail – focus on a particular bit of the ‘bigger picture’ and get creative.
