Autism Acceptance Day- New Blog Articles

Here are links to new blog articles for Autism Acceptance Day, April 2, 2012. I will add to the list as they come in. More will be appearing throughout the day! Hang in there, everyone- write, or make videos, or slide shows, or whatever you can do on the ground to show that Autism acceptance is what we want, and what we intend to have. NOTE: I am changing how I am crediting the authors in both this ongoing post and in the links list on the side. I am planning to put authors names or avatars in parens, but I wont get to all of it right away. Too much going on! ANOTHER NOTE: The articles found on the Autistic Self Advocacy Network blog and at Thinking Person's Guide to Autism are located in other blog posts on this site in order to keep a reasonable number of links in each post.

  2. I have a blog article up for autism acceptance month and plan on writing more as the month goes on. I hope this catches on in a big way. What a difference it would make. http://takealeftatthemoon.blogspot.com/

    Here's to Autism Acceptance Month!

  3. NOTE: I will move your links up to the main body of the article after reading them. I am supposed to be meeting with my earthquake assistance case manager in 45 minutes, so it might take a while, but hope to get to it today, and throughout the month. Keep those thoughtful posts and links coming!

    1. Since the entire month is Autism Acceptance Month and we are at the beginning of International Autism Acceptance Year (April 2012-April 2013), there's really no such thing as a late submission! You can send something any time since this is a permanent blog.
