Autism Talent Showcased in Seskatchewan

autism talent showcase

Harkirat Bhullar is a typical Grade 8 student at the Lakeridge Elementary School in Saskatoon, Canada. He has many talents of his own but recently he has been working on showcasing the talents of his fellow classmates.

More specifically, he wants to give a voice to those with autism spectrum disorder. The boy teamed up with a local organization and joined as one of their youngest members of the planning committee.

His inspiration comes from a fellow student who has autism. Harkirat has seen some people ignore kids like his classmate because they don’t understand them or lack of awareness. By creating a talent show for these unique kids, he wants to change the way people see them. Through his work he would like to help create an environment where kids with autism feel encouraged to explore their potential and display their talents. He understands that these children are need the support of others and this event can do just that.

The show is open for all kids ages 4 to 16 years old in the Seskatchewan and Alberta area to show off all their unique talents. There are no restrictions on what they can do so they expect to see an assortment of skills- from artwork to playing an instrument to horseback riding. This is what can make it a truly one of a kind and enjoyable experience for all involved.

It’s also a great way for the kids to showcase and celebrate their talents in front of a large group of people. There will be a junior category for the young children and a senior category for the older ones. Prizes will be given to the winner and runner up of each category. They will also be honored at a later fundraising event on June 21.

He hopes that through his efforts people become more accepting of their peers with disabilities. The talent show is his first attempt at a much larger plan to change the world around him for the better.
