Little Iris Grace has had a problem speaking all her life. At the age of 2 years old she was diagnosed with autism. But this sick girl has found a wonderful way of expressing herself – she creates special paintings.
Her mother, Arabella Carter-Johnson, says: “We have been encouraging Iris to paint to help with speech therapy, joint attention and turn taking. Then we realized 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 colors and how they interact with each other.”
