Jodie puts us in the picture with her colourful view of the world as we mark World Autism Day

How’s this to brighten up your day?

It’s World Autism Day today (Thursday), and these fantastic pictures celebrate all our special people.

The main picture was painted beautifully by Jodie O’Connor, from Darkley.

Her mum Bernie, who helps run the Triple A autism group in Armagh, said the current COVID-19 pandemic has been difficult for many to understand.

But it has helped to put paint and paper together and get these things across.

Said Bernie: “A lot will be facing a very challenging time with no structure and routines.

“I’m sure people will have seen the rainbows being done at the minute and it is lovely to highlight both today.

“Jodie here recently did a picture of a rainbow which she named Out Of This World – it is her view of what is going on at the minute.

“She also received a lovely wee picture in the post today done by a young person in Portadown to highlight autism awareness and we now have both in our window.

“I thought it was lovely as, with everything going on, it’s great to stay connected and maybe brighten up the day for others.”

We couldn’t agree more – and we must admit both of these pictures have helped brighten our day!
