Amazing Kitten Helps Artist Girl With Autism

Looking at little Iris Halmshaw’s photographs, you wouldn’t think that she was any different than any other 4-year-old little girl. And yet, she is. Iris is on the autism spectrum. The four-year-old girl rarely speaks and has great trouble with interacting with others, but expresses herself through movement and art.
Iris loves to paint. She does so with intense focus and concentration.
Since her diagnosis in 2012, witht he help of many experts, her parents were able to learn about how to help their daughter. Iris changed dramatically in just a short period of time. Although they still have a long way to go with her, they’re having more good days than bad ones. Aside from painting, spending time with her adorable guardian, Thula, a Maine Coon kitten helps her live life more fully.
Thula joins in with every activity, helping keep Iris interested and engaged. Iris’ mom, Arabella, describes Thula as a constant source of amusement and joy even on a grey day.

Check out Iris’ website to see more of her artwork or Follow the Little Miss Masterpiece and her best friend, Thula on Facebook.

Please stop saying autistic people ‘have the minds of [insert age here]’.

An eighteen-year-old autistic person does not have the mind of a child, they have the mind of an eighteen-year-old autistic person. 

Stop infantilizing autistic people.

fucking THANK YOU

This is a picture I was commissioned to do by FR user HouseStark! The dragon’s name is Skittles! She and her Owlcat are playing tag! :3 I wanted to share this with here too!

This is so cute! I love how the Owlcat is laser-focused on the fluffy tip of her tail.:)
