Teacher creates fashionable way to spread autism awareness
DeKALB – Lauren Kruse wanted to make a statement when she designed her handmade Autism Awareness Month scarf: We are all equal, disability or otherwise, and every child deserves the opportunity to learn.
Kruse, a special education teacher at Camelot School of DeKalb, said she enjoys helping others and giving students with autism the chance they might not otherwise have. Her craft-making skill has given her the opportunity to spread that message – and supporters have been “scarfing” them up.
“When the scarves went on the Autism Society web page, I crashed the site because so many people wanted to buy them,” Kruse said.
