Author Bio | Meet Dana
Welcome! I am Dana Young-Askew. Autism mother, inclusive children’s book author, speaker and advocate. My son Drayden is Autistic + phenomenal. Drayden has been my introduction to the Autistic community. I am constantly learning and listening.
Come Meet Drayden is my children’s book inspired by my children. The story is uniquely told from the siblings perspective. Representation matters. My hope is that Autistic children see themselves as apart of the narrative, siblings of children with disabilities understand they are not alone and for conversations of nurodiversity will take place in homes. In celebrating April as Autism Awareness/Acceptance Month, I’ve created two candles - Awareness & Acceptance.
Both candles were created after listening to Autistic individuals. An informed decisions were made for each candle - colors for labels, the nontoxic fragrances and both candle names. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to Advocating 4 Kids, Inc. All your support is deeply appreciated. Please feel free to share photos of your candle using #myautismcandle. I’d love to see who you light your candle for. Thank you for being here!
