It's specifically designed for teaching those with autism and other developmental disabilities,

Autism defined -
The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development (NICHHD) defines Autism as: "a complex developmental disorder that affects how a person behaves, interacts with others, communicates, and learns." Symptoms usually start before age three and can cause delays or problems in many different skills that develop from infancy to adulthood.

Autism Spectrum Disorder -
NICHHD explains Autism Spectrum Disorder as follows: "Different people with autism can have very different symptoms. Health care providers think of autism as a 'spectrum' disorder, a group of disorders with similar features. One person may have mild symptoms, while another may have serious symptoms. But they both have an autism spectrum disorder."

For Parents -
If you're the parent of a child recently diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder, you can find articles about parenting an autistic child. We here at LucasWorks have been where you are, and remember just how hard it was.

Lucas - The youngest child of LucasWorks' founders Lauren & Alan Padgett, Lucas was diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder when he was 2.5 years old. The doctors and education specialists told the Padgetts that Lucas would never speak or communicate.

The 'experts' told Lauren and Alan to prepare for institutionalizing Lucas by the time he was around 10 years old, because in addition to autism, he was unbelievably hyperactive, which the doctors felt contributed to the prognosis that no one would ever be able to reach him or help him.

Lauren & Alan can now look back over the years, see how far Lucas has come, and try to offer you hope for the future. Don't let anyone tell you what your child with an autism spectrum disorder will or will not achieve; the truth is, THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU AND YOUR CHILD ARE CAPABLE OF, DO THEY?

Safety issues - In addition to learning how to deal with and help someone with an autism spectrum disorder, the Padgetts also had to figure out how to keep Lucas safe. There were so many "what if" questions, like, "what if he takes off in WalMart and I can't catch him" or "what if he gets out of the house through a window one day".

Spreading hope and help - LucasWorks was started when the Padgetts found themselves having to design some of the autism products they needed to help Lucas, because they couldn't find what they needed on the market.

Now they want to give other parents a place to find autism products to help their child and to keep them safe, while also helping to teach job skills to people with an autism spectrum disorder. Ordering from LucasWorks Autism Products is a win-win situation for fighting autism!

Experience and advocacy - In addition to having first hand experience raising a son with autism, Lauren Padgett has also spent many years working as an advocate for those with autism spectrum disorders and other disabilities.

She's not just talking as the parent of a child with an autism spectrum disorder, but as someone who has worked at many different levels of both educational and advocacy groups to help provide the best services to children with special needs, especially those with an autism spectrum disorder.

So enjoy your visit to LucasWorks Autism Products - You'll find articles filled with all sorts of information, products to help keep your loved one safe, and the most amazing Autism Awareness jewelry, all offered to help those with autism and those who love them.
