Autistic Woman Finds Her Voice Working with Black Cats

22-year old Jordan is on the autism spectrum and is mostly non-verbal. But that hasn’t stopped her from communicating with her favorite furry friends – black cats.

Thanks to Mychal’s Learning place, a non-profit organization that helps people like Jordan build independence and self-esteem, she’s found her voice through interacting with black cats. Mychal’s arranged for Jordan to volunteer at Adopt and Shop, a local animal rescue organization, where Jordan can interact with dozens of furry kitties each day who need love and socialization to prepare them for adoption. Jordan’s verbal skills are improving as she loves her furry charges.
