Rainbow Mosho joins Beale Street Art Crawl Summer Series!

Rainbow Mosho is one of the youngest artists to join the most inclusive art show in Tennessee and, in my opinion, the US!

Ability, being a part of the community, sharing her story, learning about entrepreneurship at an early age are some of the goals.

Having fun is a must – she’s a kid. Plus, Beale Street has a wonderful vibe for all families to enjoy.

Rainbow Mosho gets ready to sell her latest creations – Techno Future, Techno Eye, Techno Brain – at Beale St Art Crawl

The Ambassador of Autism Tourism!

My daughter wants to travel. She wishes to discover the world. She says all the time, you went to China and you did not take me… not fair!!

We have read posts about families raising children, teens and adults on the autism spectrum who have succeeded planning trips. Yes, even with autism on board they were capable of enjoying a vacation. Above all, not allowing the diagnosis control the dynamics.

Here is our effort. We must share what we are learning and enjoying.

I am aware not everyone can do what we do, how we do it. The purpose here is not to compare since we have something to learn from all of you, I firmly believe that. The purpose is to share how we accept the awesome and the challenges of our day to day. Above all, how we seek quality of life.

Enjoy the latest posts…

Thomais learned to read like her peers in the period from March 2016-March 2017.

An incredible tutor made it happen… Mrs. K will remain in our hearts and lives for eternity…

Her patience, dedication and willingness to teach and learn from Thomais is unequaled.

Thomais’s autism behaviors challenged the process and everyone persevered.

Thomais’s dyslexia never hindered the process. On the contrary, Mrs. K’s multisensory methods, knowledge of a variety of existing interventions guided the process. Above all, a love for teaching.

 

Enjoy one of Thomais’s creations as she continues to express her emotions, curiosity and above all, her inventiveness.
