EXPO 2021 Vendor Praise

“It was an absolute honor for BlueSprig to be a part of The First Annual Montgomery County Children and Families Expo. From the countless Community Resource Tables, the smiles on the parent’s faces as they interacted and were informed of how many resources were at their fingertips, and the excited children taking pictures with Captain America and Unicorn Princess; this event provided everything and more. It is safe to say that BlueSprig is already clearing our calendar for next years date. “


EXPO 2021 Vendor Praise

Thrive with Autism’s First Annual Expo was a fantastic event! There were lots of attendees who enjoyed learning about all the amazing resources available in the area to their children and families alike. High Strides Speech Therapy will definitely attend again next year!

Attendee Praise

Very informative on multiple levels for each of my kids needs and they had fun at most the booths, win/win for the day! Honestly so much was checked off my to do list (dental/eyes/gymnastics/chat with Thrive). Thank you for holding it! ( K.H.)

We are new to this and seeing my child around kids like him and talking to parents gave me hope that I haven't had before. We even got to meet board members that stood next to us and hear us out. (K.T.)

Foundation's Message

October was an exciting month for Thrive With Autism Foundation!

On October 4th, Thrive With Autism Foundation attended the Els for Autism Golf Challenge regional event at the Woodlands Country Club in Texas. We met lots of great people and educated the local golfing community on autism awareness. We were honored to be invited as the local Community Give Back Partner of Els for Autism Foundation, located in Jupiter, FL, which has served as inspiration for our organization. 

On October 16th, Thrive With Autism Foundation hosted the First Annual Montgomery Country Children and Families Expo at the Magnolia Event Center. We had 55 vendors who showcased local services offered in our community for special needs children, as well as typical children. We also had fun activities for the children such as a bounce house, face painting, petting a donkey, etc.

In addition, we hosted a blood drive for a local child with cancer with 37 donors registered. It was a huge success.

Thrive With Autism Foundation is a separate 501c3 nonprofit organization set up as a supporting sister entity to our charter school, Thrive Center For Success. Our organization is working to build relationships within the community, spread autism awareness, will begin offering various trainings for caregivers, and will continue to host community events for families.  

The long-term goal of the Foundation is to supplement the charter school. The Foundation will provide additional services to children with autism such as recreational activities, social skills groups, vocational training, and other therapies such as speech, occupational therapy, and Applied Behavior Analysis.  

We will be holding fundraising events to support the charter school and the Foundation activities in the future. 

Stay tuned for more ways to connect soon!!

Q & A

Exceptional Entrepreneur 


Q: Why did you decide to become a business owner?

A: To show the positive side of autism, I wanted people to know autistic adults can be business owners.


Q: What was your mission at the start of your company?

A: To raise Autism Acceptance and Activism, show how autism can really be awesomism, also to use the 2 proceeds to help other autistic adults and autism families.


Q: What services or products do you offer?

A: Handmade chalk items, mugs, shirts and building websites.


Q: What makes you an Expectational Entrepreneur?

A: I make all kinds of handmade items, I sell them in my store, and the proceeds from all the sales will go to help other autistic adults. My mom and I are setting up a new project called Team Awesomism Virtual Academy, and we’re going to be having a private online academy for autistic adults in which we will help them develop their life skills and social skills, this is to help them for their future. Our main goal is to help turn autism into awesomism, and by me selling all of my items and helping people with their websites, all the proceeds from the sales of everything I make, or get paid to do, can help keep our virtual academy free, that way autistic adults don’t have to pay for anything at all.
