Hello, I’m Yvonne, a mother who has a creative son, who loves art and science experiments. He is also autistic and additionally has a rare chromosome condition: 16p11.2 Microduplication. I run the Positively ASD blog.
Like my son, I also faced barriers at school with my learning difficulties, only later to discover at university that I’m dyslexic. Furthermore, you can read About Me to find out a little more about why I chose to create the Positively ASD blog.
What to expect.
The main focus of my blog is around art , autism and life; but, I also cover niche topics (from our experiences) such as my son’s rare condition and discussing neurodiversity and disability from a multicultural perspective. (My son is half Italian, I am biracial: Black Caribbean, Caucasian and Portuguese).
Here is what to expect on the Positively ASD blog:
- Autistic-related topics.
- Disability topics.
- Posts on mental health and wellbeing.
- Science experiments, crafts and indoor activities.
- Artwork full of colour and creativity.
- Days out and visits to galleries and museums.
- Free templates and visual resources.
Here are a few photos from my blog posts:
There are plenty of creative artwork made by my son throughout the blog too! Please visit our Art Gallery Page to view more art.
If you like what you see on my Positively ASD blog, don’t forget to share and like the posts. Happy reading!
