“Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”
Many children and (young) adults with autism are used to talking about what they can NOT do; that their inabilities prevent them from participating (properly) in society. This makes them feel like an outsider. Their self-image crumbles and with it their conviction that they can take care of themselves and function in a society that often sees them as ‘apart’.
A-Talent focuses on what a person can do and encourages him or her to develop further, to grow. But people who have doubts about their talent or, indeed, think they don’t even have talent, can come to us just as well. We organize inspiring activities, both online and offline, and through our community they can learn from each other’s experiences. Sparring with like-minded souls.
