1. Learning more about them
2. Supporting their families
Though many would not ask you for help, supporters of autistic children would often need to sacrifice their leisure time and off-days to give their children the care they need. Offering to help them take care of their children is thoughtful... but if you do not have any special experience or knowledge, there is a high chance that you would be rejected. Instead, you can help them do simple household chores or offer them transport when needed. Simple things like;
"Hey, can I help with your dishes?" and "Do you want a lift" are the kind acts they would greatly appreciate you for.
If there's a chance you really want to do more than helping those in your neighbourhood, you can also join online communities and offer them help when there are requests.

3. Supporting their artworks and/or support them through donations.
In Thailand and overseas, many organisation, foundations and individuals are raising awareness about Autism and garnering supports for the everyday necessity of these individuals. These efforts include accepting donations, fund-raising activities and sales of artworks from their artists. In Thailand, Artstory by AustismThai sells wonderful artworks and merchandise by their talented artists to support the children inside their foundation.
To celebrate the abilities of these talented artists, Tocco Toscano has joined hand with The Art Faculty, to release the first TAF Edition featuring the artwork by Asher Won.
Asher will earn royalties from sales from this collaboration and at the same time know the value of his work.
Tocco Toscano is proud to be the supporter of these special artists and a channel for them to showcase their work.
The Art Faculty is a social enterprise by Autism Resource Centre (Singapore), to celebrates abilities of people with autism and related challenges. Find out more
