We’re in the art room today talking with Zenaviv founder, Harish Bikmal about how artists with autism can show and sell their work. Harish is an autism dad who shares his personal story and journey that led to creating this online platform where artists with unique abilities can be taken seriously about their work.
In this episode you will discover:
- How Harish’s experience as a father led to the creation of Zenaviv and has helped so many families.
- How siblings can help provide encouragement and grow in their own right as a result of living with autism.
- Biomedical interventions that helped both of our children grow and develop more effectively.
- How to encourage your child’s talents as an artist.
