Becky B's curator insight, July 8, 2013 12:54 PM

Would it surprise you to learn that Iris is just three years old? Diagnosed with autism in 2011, Iris speaks little and has difficulty interacting with others. But her artwork helps her express herself. Since starting a variety of therapies, she has come to interact more intimately with her parents and to communicate through vocalizations, signs, and, of course, art.

Keep in mind, Iris is just three years old.  She was diagnosed with autism in 2011 and her artwork is her major source of communication.
