I made her day by praising her strength-Wheelchair hopefulness.

I’ll share a story. When my kids were in elementary school. We saw a little girl in a wheelchair on their way home from school. The kids asked, why is that girl in a wheel chair. I said, “She’s got super strong arms because she can’t use her legs. The little girl just beamed. I’m sure no one had ever said that to her before.  She gave me a thumbs up. I could see how excited she was to hear me say that. She was used to people talking about how disabled she was or something. If you see someone is a wheelchair, talk about their strength instead of their weakness. Make their day. Share...

How to fix public education. 

  This is Betsy Devos the head of the Department of Education. I write this as a longer post to express how I would improve public education.  Everyone having debates about which type is better really depends on the school and on your child.  So let’s see what Betsy Devos actually does. Trump wants to get rid of federal interference in public education. Local control is a good thing I think, as long as it includes my kids and yours. FAPE is a fancy acronym in my book and it stands for Free and Public Education. That means that kids on the spectrum still get access to education no matter their circumstances. I also know many kids who home school because their public or private school did not fill their needs. I am mixed about this issue. If I were head of the dept of education here is what I would do assuming I had funding. Make sure that if you home school, private or public that you get proper resources and money. I know my sons school is underfunded because his home schools that are supposed to allocate Money to his school doesn’t and because of that he doesn’t have access to the programs electives and clubs he should which in case would be a career.   Share...

People with autism have interests. Does make you a nerd? No they can get you a job.

  The educators and the “experts” want kids on the autistic spectrum to be well rounded kids. Kids who have many interests.  These kids may be quite focused on  building things, or computers or whatever it may be.  Why do we have to all be well rounded? Sometimes when experts tell your kid to stop being so focused on one particular subject and explore other opportunities. Let’s not make them into something they are not. Let’s not force them to try a sport that they don’t really like. Let the kids be who they are. Let them be a nerd, because as Wil Wheaton says, “being a nerd is awesome”. In high school, we jam everyone together who like different things and explore different avenues, and you get criticized for what you like, and how you like them. As an adult, you get a career doing what you love, and what you do well. Assuming the other people in that career are doing the same, you are surrounded by people who love things the way you love them. Wil Wheaton says being a nerd is awesome and that no one should tell you not to love maybe because certain people are not supposed to do that. So your kids like computers, or cars or whatever it is. Let them have it. Self learning or exploring that activity to their hearts content not only gives them joy, but a job. If they can be paid to do what they were already doing, then let it be. Stop trying to change our kids into someone else. Share...

Rest In Peace Dan Olmsted. Autism Hero

It was with great sadness I announce the passing of a hero and a martyr in the autism world.  Dan Olsted has passed away. He was the founder of the the blog the Age of Autism as well as the book by the same name. He also wrote other books. There is a book coming out in July, The Denial: How Refusing to Face the Facts About Our Autism Epidemic Hurts Children, Families—and Our Future, as well as Vaccines 2.0. Way back in 2006 I was investigating my twins and I was in a Moms of multiples group. Every doctor at the time said autism was genetic. But my boys were different from each other, and their story didn’t match what I was told. So because I already had national access to Moms of Multiples group, I started asking the one identical twin parents if there were any where one had autism. I wanted to find out why. I found a mom, Kimberly Stewart who had twins who were adopted by two different families. One vaccinated their son and he was autistic. the other was not vaccinated and was not autistic. At the time, I thought this is gold. Surely, some scientist would publish a story like this about genetics and for once it would prove that autism had environmental links. I told many doctors, every one I could find. Not one would publish this story or investigate or even look into it a little bit. There were only three people who took an interest in that story.  Dan Olmsted, Mark Blaxill, and Andy Wakfield. Andy, at the time...
