About Alicia Grant

My name is Alicia Grant and I am the mom of an autistic intellect. Early on when my child was diagnosed with autism I felt helpless. I struggled to find ways to cope not with the diagnoses, but with the way I knew the world would view my child. The label that would be attached everywhere my child would go. So I tirelessly worked to find ways to change that stigma that the world has created and imposed on individuals with autism. After many meltdowns about the textures of clothing that we had bought for my son to wear, I remember just taking a breath one day. My son did something that he always did. He took a look in the mirror. The answer was always right before me. I just needed to slow down and pay attention. He silently told me what he didn't like but also what he did. So after that I wanted him to show me more of his style. Amazingly my son at 6 years old, created a shoe that he wanted to wear based on colors and textures. The thing that seemed so difficult for me to understand was so effortless and simply expressed by him. That was the start of the TAI brand. The first impression that you will get with any individual who wears TAI is, expressive, unique but also so stylish. Wearing such a brand will not only give the world a different perspective of autism but the amazing talent that individuals on the Spectrum possess.
