5-Year-Old With Autism Paints Stunning Masterpieces 

utism is a poorly-understood neurological disorder that can impair an individual’s ability to engage in various social interactions. But little 5-year-old Iris Grace in the UK is an excellent example of the unexpected gifts that autism can also grant – her exceptional focus and attention to detail have helped her create incredibly beautiful paintings that many of her fans (and buyers) have likened to Monet’s works.

Little Iris is slowly learning to speak, whereas most children have already begun to speak at least a few words by age 2. Along with speech therapy, her parents gradually introduced her to painting, which is when they discovered her amazing talent.

“We have been encouraging Iris to paint to help with speech therapy, joint attention and turn taking,” her mother, Arabella Carter-Johnson, explains on her website. “Then we realised that she is actually really talented and has an incredible concentration span of around 2 hours each time she paints. Her autism has created a style of painting which I have never seen in a child of her age, she has an understanding of colours and how they interact with each other.”

1. everyone has something that causes them so much sadness they don’t want to get out of bed in the morning. everyone struggles with giving up on something every day of their lives. yes, even celebrities. yes, even your parents. when you realize this, you look at the world differently forever. so realize this.

2. evolution ensures the survival of the species. everyone is constantly changing. the person who loved you last year might not like you right now. the person you become next year might not like you right now. like yourself right now. find people whose right now likes your right now and hold onto them until your right nows aren’t compatible anymore.

3. we are all granted with privilege in one way or another. figure out yours. then figure out how to protect those without that privilege, and how to dismantle the system that provides it.

4. love comes in as many flavors as ice-cream. don’t ever let someone who doesn’t understand your flavor tell you that it isn’t real. your love is real. your love is important. don’t let anyone stifle your love just because they’re stuck with plain vanilla.

5. drink more water.

6. some people just aren’t good people. this sucks. this is probably the most painful lesson you will ever have to learn. not everyone can be redeemed. sometimes, no matter how much you love someone, you’re going to have to let them go anyway. i’m sorry about that.

7. it’s okay to give up on things. never stick around after something stops being good for you, just because of the time you’ve spent on it already. this applies to people, too.

8. be nice to animals and children. even if they pee on you.

9. you are not always going to love your body. the world is not always going to love your body. take care of your body anyway, because it’s the only one you’re ever going to get. it’s the one place that will always be your home.

10. be respectful. even towards people who aren’t like you. especially towards people who aren’t like you. say please and thank you, and mean it. be grateful. be compassionate. learn. grow. explore. live.
