My family has been touched by autism in different ways. Evey person’s experience with the autism spectrum is so very different. When a subject is important to me, I tend to jump in with both feet and learn as much as I can. So that’s what I did.
I read books by Temple Grandin to start, then found blogs that opened my eyes to the many facets of the lives of people on the spectrum and the people who love them. I found inspiration, sadness, frustration, joy, humor, sarcasm, fear, trauma, love, friendship, appreciation, support, and most of all – Advocacy.
This blog is a collection of these perspectives, an attempt to “signal boost” the words of autistic bloggers and others who support them, to increase the reach of their message. Their words build bridges of understanding and acceptance for those among us who face challenges every day.
