understimation of kids

The Underestimation Of Kids On The Autism Spectrum

One of the reasons we started Squag was because we felt that many kids on the autism spectrum were being underestimated in environments that weren’t set up how they communicated.

We asked our parents, and sure enough, the data is clear across the board. They felt their kids were being underestimated on almost every front, every day, about everything – from how smart they were, to how creative, how loving, how funny, and so on.

That does not fly around here and makes our mission crystal clear:

We need to help kids build their “squag” so that no matter what they do or where they go, they are valued, respected, and understood.
