Way to go Best Buy! This is such a heartwarming story...

“Words cannot express my appreciation for Best Buy and its Fort Wayne store! Parker’s goal is to someday work at Best Buy. Parker has autism and has always been a huge fan of anything that involves electronics. He loves TVs, DVDs, computers and everything about the store.

I emailed Best Buy asking to buy a shirt for Halloween a couple months back, and they emailed me back saying they would love to make a night of it! When we arrived, they gave Parker his own personal shirt and name tag and let him pick out whatever he wanted. He then had to scan everything because he was the ‘worker.’

Christmas came early for this little boy and we are forever grateful for the memories made tonight. The amazing Best Buy employees who helped that night deserve all the credit for his special night.”

About Trainer: Sunny Anastasia, ERYT -200

Despite of all challenges that I had to go through growing up with disability, I learned how to thrive and not to give up! I chose to devote my life helping others in any capacity I can and especially to those with disabilities. My personal journey and extensive experience teaching yoga to individuals with disabilities, led to creation of this amazing continuing education course. I have been offering this course for over 4 years now and it helped so many educators, therapists, parents, yoga teachers, and people who are passionate to about yoga and mindfulness!

Social attention shifts differently over time for autistic adults | Spectrum | Autism Research News

"When autistic and non-autistic people look at photographs depicting social scenes, they generally look at faces first and then let their eyes wander to other parts of the image. After a few seconds, neurotypical adults are likely to return their gaze to the faces, but autistic people are not, according to a new eye-tracking study."

Neurotypical adults change how they view social scenes over time in a way that autistic adults do not, reflecting different underlying mechanisms of social attention.

Some autistic people report poor quality of life, but many do not | Spectrum | Autism Research News

"Autistic people vary widely in their quality of life, a new study shows1. Some report shortcomings in their physical health and school achievement, among other areas, but many do not.

To help autistic people improve their well-being and satisfaction with life, researchers need a better understanding of what matters to individuals, says lead researcher Eva Loth, senior lecturer in forensic and neurodevelopmental sciences at King’s College London in the United Kingdom"

Autistic people vary widely in how they describe their quality of life. Anxiety and depression may account for that range more than traits of autism do.

Barriers to Financial Independence for People with Disabilities

According to a 2017 report from the National Council on Disability:

People with disabilities are twice as likely to live in poverty than people without disabilities.

Although they make up 12% of the working-age population, persons with a disability account for more than half of people living in long-term poverty.

The employment rate of people with disabilities is only 32%, while the employment rate of those without disabilities is 73%.

Being financially independent and self-sufficient should be a reasonable goal for anyone, including people with disabilities. Unfortunately, there are many barriers to these goals – and the biggest is health care.
