Seeing the Beauty in “Imperfection”

I love the moments when societies deficit language is challenged, often heard when describing disability.

It was an absolute blast spending some time with Rachel Callander who is an author/photographer & has featured photographs of children with chromosomal and genetic conditions.

Not only does her book “Super Power Baby Project” have a collection of exquisite photographs, but they are also complemented with powerful messages.

Autistics Feeling Proud

Recently I attended the I CAN NETWORK “AWETISM 2017: Celebrating The Spectrum Expo” which was a gig I won’t forget for a long time.

At this Expo students who were involved in the I CAN Secondary Schools Program showcased their talents and abilities.

The main message for me after attending this Expo, is how important it is that we encourage people who are on the Spectrum to be proud & our society needs to be more accepting.

See below my chat with Chris Varney, Founder of the I Can Network along with Julia Wake, the Chair of the I Can Network Board.
