  1. A blog post at TPGA, remembering back to the first Autistics Speaking Day, is here:

    Quote from Corina Becker: "It started sometime mid-October last year. I was browsing the internet, following links off of Twitter to new places I hadn’t been, when something caught my eye. A new autism awareness campaign, it advertised itself as a way to raise money for charities around the world and for people to understand autism better. Curious, and ignoring the growing dread in the pit of my stomach, I clicked the link and took a look."

  2. This year's posts include a number of videos. I am very happy to see more types of media being used to communicate our ideas and thoughts.
