Hi everyone!  I have a whole bunch of new stuff to come over the next few days, but in the meantime, please read this awesome post by Lisa over at Reports from A Resident Alien.  She is a biomedical engineering major at Wright State University, she was recently featured on NPR, she is autistic, and she is amazing.

The Blue Puzzle Piece

Posted by on Apr 26, 2010 | 4 comments

I have gone back and forth about whether or not to mention this here, as I would like this site to remain politics-free.  However, I think this is important.

Don’t hate me, but I can’t deal with Autism Speaks anymore.  The blue puzzle piece just doesn’t speak for us.

There are lots of reasons behind this, but rather than get into them here, I’d like to direct you to Shannon at PITAUP, who does the job quite nicely here

There’s also an awesome group on Facebook where you can go to learn more – Help Tell The Truth About Autism Speaks.

Basically, I’ve been looking at this whole autism thing from the viewpoint of a parent.  My attitude changed when I thought about how Jack will present himself as an adult and what he’ll want out of life as an autistic individual.  I am his champion, his advocate and his biggest fan, and that’s a job I don’t take lightly.  I can’t support any organization that doesn’t recognize that what makes Jack different makes him amazing.

I will, however, wear their free t-shirt while cleaning.  I’m thrifty like that.
