"Aundonisms"
to take with you

An “Aundonism” is a saying or solution that helped Aundon to express and translate his needs to the outside world without fear of judgment or shame. These were developed and implemented by his village of family, teachers and loving therapists.
Take hugs, for instance. Children like Aundon need sensory input like hugs. They absolutely love the pressure and they love the squeeze. With love and patience, Aundon now knows when to ask for hugs and from whom, in orde to stay safe and establish boundaries.
Another example is when Aundon started walking on his toes and his physical therapist gently corrected him with the simple phrase, “Flat feet.” Not only was this phrase effective but everyone else in Aundon’s village got on board with helping Aundon to progress to the finish line. Within 90 days, Aundon no longer needed to be reminded and was walking like normal.
All “Aundonisms” are Aundon-tried and approved.
If you feel like these Aundonisms can benefit you and your child, try them.
We have even made them available on t-shirts, backpacks and hats so you can literally try them on for size!

The AKLA
seal of approval

Are you a business who services the public and strives for inclusivity for people of all abilities? If you said “yes”, then consider getting the AKLA seal of approval for your establishment and team.
A place or business that has earned the AKLA (A Kid Like Aundon) certification has been identified as a place where our kids can go, be welcomed and have their needs met. To obtain this certification, these businesses had to meet the following requirements:
  • Provide provisions and designated safe spaces to accommodate families who need somewhere to regroup
  • Trained their staff to teach for greater self-awareness and inclusion
  • Put different protocols in place to make adjustments for families
Being interested and getting involved in making a difference is the start to creating environments that are welcoming, friendly, accessible, supportive and designed for inclusivity. This program is a national initiative to create more than conversations, special days or awareness months. We are creating real change and better experiences in our communities so everyone can be together and have fun.

Sign up today for more information on our exclusive training and certification program.
