Boy Designs Dragon T-Shirts to Raise Autism Awareness, Unleashes his Inner Knight

In fairytales, dragons are usually the villains. But for one boy in the real world, they're the heroes.

Santino Stagliano is a 10-year-old with autism who designs dragon T-shirts to raise awareness and money for the Center for Autism in Philadelphia, Today.com reported. The hand-drawn designs have helped the 10-year-old come out of his shell, and he now shares his dragons through his own nonprofit.

"I think it's really helping to spread awareness and the message that children with autism are very capable, but might just need to be supported in more creative ways," Santino's mother, Lisa Stagliano, told the news outlet.
