I will be on Autism Women's Network Blogtalk Radio on March 29 at 10 am PST, 11 am MST, 12 noon CST and 1 pm EST.
Autism Acceptance Day and Month, 2014 Facebook Event
Autism Acceptance Day and Month continue in our fourth year. Interviews with Autistic people about Autism ACCEPTANCE will continue over the year. This resource of interviews will add to the growing body of accepting views of autism.
I will publish Autism Acceptance Day and Month events and activities that are sponsored and promoted by Autistics and allies and that are primarily Autistic-led. Some events and activities have stared using the word "acceptance" but have little Autistic input, payments to non-Autistics but not to Autistics, "treatments" and that sort of thing. Those can feel free to do what they want; they just won't appear here.

Tone It Down Taupe -The iPad mini scholarship is on! Details below…
Tone it Down Taupe is sponsoring this fantastic gift giveaway for two deserving Autistic adults for April’s Autism Acceptance Month celebration. TiDT’s initiative is to put a halt to the fear from myths and stereotypes which are perpetuated about Autistic people. TaiDT says, “Tone it down. Tone down the fear rhetoric. Tone down the alarmism. It is not necessary to light anything blue to show support and love for an autistic individual.”
Tone it Down Taupe Sponsors iPad Giveaway in April- Radio Show with AWN Blogtalk Radio
During the month of April 2014, any donations I receive will be given to Tone it Down Taupe to help purchase another iPad, to be given to an Autistic adult. Tone it Down Taupe is doing iPad and Android mini scholarships. You can donate directly to them or send it to my other blog (paulacdurbinwestbyautisticblog) and ALL the donations will be given to Tone It Down Taupe. If you designate your donation as a gift, more of the donation will go directly to the recipient:
This makes so much more sense than blue lightbulbs:
Light It Up Blue! Burn Money for Autism!
