Hi and welcome to my blog. In this week’s post, I would like to share with you a little bit about my son’s journey overcoming childhood illness and building his own business as an animator.

Meet my son Jayden Simpson. About 8 years ago, my son was diagnosed with autism. He was 3 years old at the time. His speech and social skills were not developing. Every time he needed to communicate his needs or desires, he would babble like a baby. As he grew older, the frustration of not being able to communicate manifested itself in these wild tantrums.

I could not take him anywhere. We were trapped by autism. It was a prison that would keep us bound for seemingly all eternity. If you have been following my blog for some time now, then you are aware of my journey as a single mother raising a son with autism. And how that challenge fuel my drive to teach myself to create computer games and mobile apps to help my son over come his challenges. However, in this blog post, I would like to focus your attention on the little boy with autism, who was determined to overcome his childhood illness to become a young, successful entrepreneur.

Overcoming Childhood Illness and Developing His Talents

In another blog post, I will cover the strategies we used to develop Jayden’s skills and talents. But right now I will focus on the talents that were identified and developed. It did not take us long before we realize that Jayden was great on camera. He was also very good at promoting products and services. It was not long before he started out as a brand ambassador. Today, he is the Brand Ambassador for the Read With Me Club. He actively participates in communities, large and small communities, helping parents to encourage their children to read and participate in the reading program. Check out a candid video introduction for his reading program below.

It was not long before Jayden realized that he had a gift for creating animation. He started to create his first animation in a program called Stick Nodes Pro and later taught himself to create animation in Adobe Animate CC.

He has since started a YouTube channel showcasing his work. He also hosts workshops where he teaches other kids like himself to create animations.

Super Mom

My name is Tiffany Simpson and I am a Parenting Coach and Super Mom to a 12 year old animation developer with autism. My journey as Super Mom became apparent after my son was diagnosed with autism. It was during this challenge that I taught myself to develop computer games and mobile apps. The results were amazing. Today, I help my clients overcome seemingly impossible challenges and build the amazing family life they have always dreamed of.

    What a great idea I have Autism as well and I run my own website called CrazyFitnessGuy. I thought I wanted to do stuff in technology like code websites for a living but that changed when I started blogging. I like writing and doing research about what I want to write about and I like to keep learning. If you ever want to work together to do something please feel free to reach out to me. and keep up the good work and tell your son that he can do anything that he sets his mind to.

    I find that YouTube is helpful in a lot of ways and that children could really benefit from making their own channel. I have one (MountainKicks), where I share short poetry/flows that I write, and my child has one — and she is even teaching me ways to make mine better. We’ve tried out the FlipaClip app together to animate. Blessings to you and your son.
