Disabled child models
Disabled child models are welcome at Lacara child model and talent agency. We offer representation to all children including those with disabilities. We do not have a ‘separate’ portfolio for children with disabilities, all the beautiful children are together.
Here is a fabulous quote from one of our mothers of a child on our books with disabilities;
“Zain is my handsome boy! He was diagnosed with Autism when he was 2 years old. He is a lively, loveable boy. I think he would make a great model. I think all children with special needs should be accepted in society and do things they are comfortable to do. It’s time for a change. I want to see Zain and kids with all sorts of special needs—on TV, in magazines, and in ad/modelling campaigns because they represent the beautiful diversity of the human experience.”
The quote above completely sums up how we feel about disabled child models here at Lacara.
How do you know if your disabled child is suitable for modelling?
The wellbeing of the child is paramount to us. We firstly ask you to think about a few things before putting your child forward.
How are they around new people?
How are they in a new environment?
How are they travelling?
We understand that a vast majority of children with disabilities are in a routine and feel very upset when routine is out of synch. So please be aware that if chosen for a shoot they will be required to travel to the location, meet new people, and experience a whole new activity. If you feel your child can cope with this then please complete the application form, we would love to have them onboard.
You also have the option of bringing them along for a mini-model portfolio with Lacara. This may help answer some of your questions as to how they will react whilst being exceptionally cared for by our team. Read more about our mini-model portfolio
We hope this has helped you to answer a few questions and we look forward to receiving your application. Please do not hesitate to call or email with any further queries.
