About Team Awesomism
Team Awesomism is an online virtual academy focused on developing life skills and social skills for autistic adults. We’re going to be teaching autistic kids and adults how to cook, how to reorganize your rooms (bedroom, living room, etc.), how to make proper eye contact, how to manage finances and apply for a job, and so many more.
CDC has shown that there are currently 5,437,988 autistic people living in the United States. States like Texas, Florida, California and New York have the largest populations of autistic people. Not to mention the fact that 1 in 54 people have been diagnosed with autism. Over 85% of autistic people (including college students) are unemployed.
Some experts stated that are over 7 million autistic adults out there. Many are unfortunately being left behind, and we want to change that. This is one of the reasons why we started this Virtual Academy.
With Virtual Academy being launched, Peyton and his mom Lynne as well as others are going to be putting out videos teaching you life skills and social skills, including how to go on a trip virtually, exploring interesting stuff, teach you household chores, and so many more!
While our Virtual Academy cannot single-handedly solve this issue, we can help autistic adults with life skills and social skills, by making their future easier, and help make their independent skills.
We want this to be completely free for autism families! There is a store on AwesomismMom website where they sell t-shirts, books, handmade items that were designed by Peyton and others. Proceeds from the sales go to help keep our academy free for autistic adults!
We’re looking forward to you, your business and/or someone you know in becoming a sponsor to us! You outta check out this blog about our virtual academy on AwesomismMom website.
