"The I Am, Movement” arose from the recent diagnosis of my two-year-old son, Slade, with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). As we attended therapy appointments and doctors’ visits, we were given piles of information and resources but found there to be a lack of culturally appropriate support, resources and connection for Aboriginal families.
To address this lack of resources, we offer beautiful Aboriginal-designed flash cards appropriate for use at home, in education settings and in child therapy teams. These flashcards are a tool of healing and connecting to culture on our journey. One set of flashcards teaches numbers 1 – 10 and the other set teaches the alphabet alongside images of native animals.
In addition to offering culturally-safe learning resources, “The I Am, Movement” aims de-stigmatise conditions by instead focusing on what you want to be; “I am, unique”, “I am, strong”, “I am, deadly”.
Graphics were created by Kelsi at Bink Studios – such an amazing touch to these cards as they are actual graphics of Slade our son. The Aboriginal Art going with each card is completed by Lara Went at Yukul Art. Lara is a Local Aboriginal Women from Forster.
