The Autism is a misunderstood neurological disorder that may impair an individual’s ability to interact in various social contexts. But the little Iris Grace, 5 years old from the UK is an excellent example of the unexpected gifts that autism can also be granted. Her focus and an exceptional attention to detail helped her to create incredibly beautiful paintings that many of her admirers (and buyers) compared to the works of Monet.
The little Iris is slowly learning to speak, while most children have started to speak at least a few words. Together with speech therapy, her parents introduced the girl gradually to painting and it was then discovered her amazing talent.”We have encouraged Iris painting to aid in speech therapy, joint attention and making time” her mother, Arabella Carter-Johnson explains on its website. ” Then I realized that she actually is really talented and has an incredible amount of concentration, more or less, two hours sometime. Her autism created a painting style that had never seen a child of her age, it has an understanding of color and how they interact. ”
