Focus™ Comic is an award winning superhero comic book. We have one issue of Focus in multiple languages. It features one of the world’s first autistic heroes, art work by professional artists including autistic / special needs interns. The comic is part of a humanitarian social cause initiative in maintaining dignity for autistic individuals by removing the stigma. We run different free art programs in Arizona including a free weekly art camp for students in the format of free zoom classes and online art tutorials. We also organize in person graduation events to celebrate our students accomplishments. Our free art programs provide life enriching opportunities and experiences that autistic and special needs kids cannot get elsewhere.
We champion kids with autism and special needs by helping them focus on what they can do instead of what they cant do. We help autistic and special needs individuals fulfill their creative potential and help them thrive and live life abundantly. We promote inclusion, diversity and equity. We are one of the first in the comic industry to launch a prestigious Artist of the Year Award Ceremony for Autistic and Special needs kids:
Autism awareness and acceptance is important. It affects 1 in 44 kids according to the cdc (2021). One in 5 people are neurodivergent.
The social cause project is founded and created by Yvonne Wan (A Social Cultural Anthropologist, Award Winning Comic Creator and Artist). We are supporters of the arts. We promote neuro-inclusion.
Our helpers include a certified art teacher (Award winning comic artist Douglas Hebert), a Certified social cultural anthropologist, award winning professional artists, Certified Special Education (Theresa Deacon and Ms Goldie) and psychology teachers.
Our students enjoy participating in our free art camp. Here is one of our recent graduation events where Sergeant Brideau from the US Air Force was invited to present the certificates and prizes to the children:
Even the late Queen of the United Kingdom liked Focus! The Prince and Princess of Wales are also big fans of our project (They wrote to us in January 2023). We also received a letter of support from President Biden.
Please support us. Thank you.
