My Story

My name is Ashlyn Jackson. The Autism Cube is a result of my Girl Scout Gold Award Project. This project was inspired by my older brother who has autism. Throughout his school years, he was considered to be a problem student who would act out in class. The teachers did not understand there was a reason for him acting this way. I designed this visual aid for teachers so they will be able to help students like my brother – those who may look like they are acting out but are actually struggling in the classroom setting for various reasons.
