Details of swap:
The purpose of this swap is to celebrate & support autism spectrum disorders! Are you or someone you love on the spectrum? Then this swap is for you!

-Medium = 2 or more hours
-Small = 2 or less hours
-Medium = one single necklace or bracelet, a scarf
-Small = Earrings, stickers, wallets, pouches, bookmarks
-Medium = $10-$30 dollars
-Small = $10 or less
Craft ideas: a special toy, therapy items such as weighted lap pads, I Spy bags, picture schedules, "fidgets" toys to keep little hands busy, etc., Autism awareness bag or t-shirt
a care package for an adult caretaker, puzzle piece jewelry, teaching aides such as communication boards. Also, if you have any used books, your partner might be able like them!
Communication: Please spend time getting to know your partner and her wants/needs. Autism is incredibly unique and items that are a god-send for one person might be completely useless for another person.

2.You must post in the original thread or PM me at least once a week! This starts once partners are assigned. You must pm your partner and spend time getting to know her.
