Autism Awareness Dolls

If you have followed this blog for any period of time you know we are always highlighting companies who provide unique products, while at the same time providing work opportunities to expand on skills through instruction of work skills, safety in the workplace, social skills and team work for ‘adults’ living with developmental disabilities. It’s important for companies to realize our ‘adults’ living with autism or any other developmental disability have the same desires, dreams and goals as anyone else. They want validation they matter and they can be worthy and be a contributing member of their local community just the same as anyone else, including yourself as you read this post.
