I read on Facebook that April is Autism Awareness month. Is that accurate?


message 2: by Eileen (new)

Eileen Granfors Yes, April is Autism Awareness month. Autism Speaks offers a variety of special programs and fundraisers. Eileen


message 3: by [deleted user] (new)

Thanks


message 4: by Mallory (new)

Mallory I'm autistic (Asperger's specifically), and I don't really trust Autism Speaks :P


message 5: by Eileen (new)

Eileen Granfors Mallory wrote: "I'm autistic (Asperger's specifically), and I don't really trust Autism Speaks :P"

That's interesting. Asperger's is so different from the other end of the spectrum (non-verbal). Do you think the organization slants towards the lower end of the spectrum?


message 6: by Mallory (new)

Mallory No, it's just that they don't really treat autistics with respect, judging from their PSAs and their "I Am Autism" video. It's pretty sad.


message 7: by Eileen (new)

Eileen Granfors That's awful. I will investigate and ask my kids who are the parents of our fierce little guy.


message 8: by Mallory (new)

Mallory Have you seen the I Am Autism video or at least seen the coverage of it (like Time Magazine's website)? That's where I found out about it.


message 9: by Eileen (new)

Eileen Granfors No, I saw "Autism the Musical"--I will look for "I Am Autism."


message 10: by Talyn (new)

Talyn Inside Out isn't about a kid with autism. It's about a kid with SCHIZOPHRENIA. There's a huge difference.


message 11: by Eileen (new)

Hi,
I didn't add that book. I will see if I can remove it. Huge difference is right. e
