We know that we're not the only community online, and that is ok with us.
Allow us to introduce Squag.com (@squag).
[skwag] is a curated space for kids on the autism spectrum and other exceptionalities to build ideas about themselves to share with their parents and peers.
Here's a bit from Squag.com:
"Squag™ is an opportunity for social, recreational and creative communication. It’s an alternative to video games and the everyday noise of the internet. With content from their parents and the comfort of a computer to ground them, users are free to take the extra processing time they need to start to develop a sense of self.
Squag™ is a curated, customized, intelligent, and scalable experience. It’s a beautiful corner of the web where kids can safely experiment with the big idea of friendship and gain some confidence to take with them wherever they go."
Here's a quick walk through explaining more about this pretty cool website:
Now, how does Autisable and The Autism Society come into play on this? Here's what working together can accomplish with these organizations:
Membership on Squag.com is $5.99/month per family (parents can sign up as many of their own kids as they like through this one account). Squag will donate $1 of every membership (every month) back to our charitable partners, in this case, The Autism Society.
