Here is my second post in honour of World Autism Awareness Day (yesterday, April 2). I decided to buttress the day with two important posts - the first was The Legend Of Smockity Frocks which tells a true and powerful story, still unfolding, of the lessons we have to learn about accepting differences and avoiding judgments. In this second post, I am so excited to share with you a link to THE BEST AUTISM EXPLANATION EVER IN THE HISTORY OF THE PLANET. Ok, I may not have read every other one out there, but I cannot possibly imagine a better one. Seriously, you HAVE to read this (if you haven't already). MOM-NOS wrote this after an inspirational and magical experience with her autistic son's class. I have already printed off the 'Hairdryer in a Toaster-Brained World' section and shared it with some of Simon's caregivers. Many of us are deterimined to convince MOM-NOS to turn this series into a published book - read it, and you'll see why.
Thank you to MOM-NOS and all the other bloggers who seek to understand and respect autism, while pursuing change in a world that has so much left to learn.
