Dear Beloved Blog Readers,
I am really excited that our dreary days ahead shall ring with new energy. I not only say this to cheer us joyfully forward but also to say that I am in an upward spiral.
I am fully aware that I can see more clearly a lovely picture of success. I know there will be a lot of adjustments to work with and the work will assist my work to advocate for the life I want.
I am so ready for a great conference that is coming up this month. It’s AutCom’s 25th Anniversary Conference. Its tag line is “Human Rights For All.”
I’m excited to share a bit of the history from the conference issue of The Communicator; A Publication of the Autism National Committee:
AutCom Shares a Birthday and an Anniversary
In July of 1990 both AutCom and the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) were born. ADA was signed into law as a response to the lack of access and opportunity for people with disabilities, and AutCom was founded because there was no voice for autistic individuals to protect them from the pain and humiliation being inflicted on them by programs that were supposed to protect and serve them. Both movements sought justice for both work remains to be done.
I am honored to be presenting and you’ll read more about my workshop in a future blog posting.
Brian, Emily and I will go and we’ll get to hang out with our favorite Autistic friends.
Joyful I hope you are, dear friends.
Let us move forward with the real trust we can design and refine the lives we want.
I dare you to do it.
The Same Guy, More Happy
