Kenny’s Girl, a mom-and-son startup promoting autism awareness with fashionable accessories

April is National Autism Month.

Did you know that 1 in 59 children are diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder? Owner Lisa Ulmar of Kenny's Girl shares how her accessories company is spreading awareness about autism.

Ulmar's 12-year-old son, Austin, was diagnosed with autism at the age of 2.  Ulmar dedicated Kenny's Girls "All Things Autism" collection to her son — as a way for him to get involved in the business industry.

"He helps out with [Kenny's Girls "All Things Autism"]. He helps with packaging, invoices, he picks out beads. This is for him." Lisa Ulmar said.

Ulmar created a foundation for autism caregivers, Kenny's Girl Cares, to show they are appreciated.
