Perth teenager, Alyssa, says, “I’m a proud Autistic kid. I want to be a business owner so I’ve started Lyssie’s Lanyards to make that dream come true! I also want to show other Autistic kids that we can do anything!”
Alyssa’s store showcases her handmade chewellery made from soft, silicone beads that double as a chew/fidget toy. She can also personalise lanyards, keyrings and bagtags with a certain name, school colours, favourite sports team colours, etc.
Alyssa also started the AAA Project (Alyssa’s Autism Acceptance Project) in which she goes into schools to educate neurotypical kids about the Autism Spectrum and empowers other Autistic kids. Read more about the AAA Project and contact her to organise a visit for your school.
