The following post has just been published on Huffington Post. This piece is important to me as it is the introduction to four or five subsequent posts I am planning for the entire month of April, written by autists. April, for those who may not be aware, is “autism awareness” month. These autists who will be writing posts for me to submit are the voices that have changed my life. These are the voices that, because they’ve changed my life are changing my daughter’s life. These are the voices that are NOT being included in all the fund raisers for “Autism Awareness.” How can we possibly hope for awareness if autists are not being included? Please help me by sharing the Huffington Post link (here it is again, in case you missed the first one) through email, facebook, tweets, share it, comment, please, please comment, even if it’s just to say, “I read this” and send the link to as many people as you can. We need these posts to go viral. And I need each and every one of you reading this to help me. Please.
Let’s change what “awareness” means. With your help we can.
For those interested, this is Paula Durbin-Westby’s blog, one of the autists who has agreed to write the first piece to kick things off for the Huffington Post.
