Here is a highlights film and pictures from day 1 of our Focus Comic free summer camp for kids and young adults with autism. Focus comic features one of the worlds first autistic super heroes, art by professionals including interns with autism. We maintain dignity for autistic individuals by removing the stigma associated with autism. We also promote autistic talent by having an internship program for kids including those with autism. We promote community through our social work and free summer camps. Douglas Hebert was the Head art teacher for a large class of students in Phoenix yesterday. Yvonne Wan and Mishy Katz were also art teachers who were delighted to help the kids fulfill their creative potential. Yesterday, the kids made dragon and gargoyles. Today, Douglas Hebert will be the head art teacher again with Yvonne Wan and Mishy Katz teaching also. They will be teaching the kids how to make super heroes including Focus the autistic super hero. They can also make themselves as a super hero or make a super hero of their choice. Focus empowers kids to follow their dreams and see autism as a strength and not a weakness. Support #focuscomic .
