Autism Hearts Foundation organizes Fashion Arts Autism Benefit
Children identified with Autism are among those that face serious challenges in learning and developing skills. Their ability to function as a self sufficient adult is seriously jeopardized if no opportunities are given to them to flourish, to function independently and achieve full meaningful lives.
FASHION ARTS AUTISM BENEFIT (FAAB), a project of AUTISM HEARTS FOUNDATION, Is a way to
appreciate each individual’s uniqueness to help him access the arts while nurturing his abilities to be in the world. For many individuals on the spectrum who have difficulties connecting, art can be an integral, valid part of therapy—a tool to show us who they are and what they are made of.\
FAAB PROJECT provides opportunities to develop language, cognition, fine and gross motor skills,
social and life skills, self-esteem and self-expression, and the opportunity to define potential career
paths. FAAB PROJECT is an avenue to developing an otherwise unheard voice. As a vehicle to
expression, the FAAB Artist’s creation gives him the capacity to connect to the outer world of concrete reality.
