The Shadow Song of an Autism Christmas

The Shadow Song of an Autism Christmas

The Shadow Song of an Autism Christmas Thanks to Laura Nadine for this guest post! I loved Christmas as a kid. The excitement of gifts was a small part of it, but what I really liked was the music, the yummy family cookies, and the Christmas tree. There are so many fond memories of Christmas with family.  […]

YES, AUTISM DOES SPEAK. AND J. COLE LISTENS.

JULY 22, 2013 When I woke up this morning I had a vital mission to accomplish. I intended to flood the internet with a critical message about a popular rap musician’s offensive lyrics — lyrics that caused pain to those with autism and the people who love them. I intended to get him to apologize. […]

FILMMAKERS MATT FULLER AND CAROLINA GROPPA: AUTISM IN LOVE

Matt Fuller and Carolina Groppa began doing research 18 months ago to understand a particular challenge faced by adults with autism —adults who, like all of us, want to love and be loved.

The Awe in Autism: A Spectrum of Creativity

This post is a bit long, but I’ll ask you to bear with me. My mind and heart are full to the brim, and there’s much I want to share with you. (And, OK, I’m notoriously long-winded — at least that’s what my three sons say … though that’s not quite the way they put it.)

Light Through a Prism: Reflections on the Spectrum

Light Through a Prism: Reflections on the Spectrum

Alot has happened in the six or seven years since my world changed and suddenly included the word “autism” in my daily conversations. My free time became devoted to reading books and articles on autism. I had to sort through the building tension regarding vaccines and whether or not they could be the source of my son’s disability. I had to try to understand how to help a child with autism learn, and I had to become a lobbyist on his behalf and on behalf of others with autism in an effort to ensure that schools also learn the best ways to teach children with autism.

If you’re a friend and supporter of Awe in Autism, you may have noticed some lag time in our online activities. Yes, we’ve been a little less vocal in the past few months, but we’re not going away; we’re making some big changes for the better.

Blessed By Autism

Blessed By Autism

As I write this, Thanksgiving is just days away, and the holiday season begins. Despite lots of stress and some big challenges over the past months, I anticipate these occasions with a renewed sense of awe.

When obstacles seem to be around every corner of our lives, it’s often hard to feel thankful. But I’m reminded that it’s the obstacles, in fact, that allow us to be thankful. If not for life’s challenges, what would we have to be thankful for?

‘You Are the Stars’

When I heard the news of Sargent Shriver’s death on January 18, just two days before the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s inauguration, I was struck by the impact a single individual can have on many people — and how actions, more than words, define a life.

Autism Jokes?

Autism Jokes?

I occasionally follow the discussion on Wrong Planet, a site that bills itself as “the online resource and community for Autism and Asperger’s.” I recently stumbled on a post from someone on the spectrum who had been treated cruelly by kids making autism jokes.
