Hello, I’m Yvonne, a mother who has a creative son, who loves arts and science experiments. He is also autistic and additionally has a rare chromosome condition: 16p11.2 Microduplication. I run the Positively ASC 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 ASC 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 chromo 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 ASC blog:
- Autistic-related topics.
- Disability topics.
- Posts on mental health and wellbeing.
- Science experiments
- Arts and 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.
Arts and Crafts.
The Positively ASC blog offers content that can also be listened to with the option of the “listen to this page” button. In addition, the content in my blog posts are structured with headings, subheadings, and most of the posts have images. Furthermore, at the start of every post is a table of contents and estimated reading time.
On the Home Page, there is a Google Translate drop-down bar, which allows you to translate the posts into another language. Also, at the bottom of the Home Page is an accessibility toolbar, which gives you the option to adjust the font size and contrast.
If you like what you see, listen to, and read on the Positively ASC blog, don’t forget to share and like the posts. Happy reading!
