Thinking People

Filed under: Autism — Teacher Professor @ 11:18 am

I’m very excited/flattered/honored that The Thinking Person’s Guide to Autism has accepted my slightly edited piece, Advertising for Autism!

This site is a particular favorite of mine.  Only up for the last four months, the daily pieces have been a collection of my old favorite bloggers, many new voices (to me) and a variety of insights from parent to professional to multicultural issues to age-related issues. All with something to share.  All with something to add.  All with respectful differences in which issues are discussed with reason, with knowledge- and with acknowledgement that sometimes differences can’t resolved.  It’s a place to find comfort without drowning; information without proselytizing, a place to think with the mind without losing the essence of the heart. 

I particularly like their logo- the child with the candle… I looked up light quotes and I found two that capture what their site means to me:

Edith Wharton- “There are two ways of spreading light- to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it”.

Chinese Proverb: Better to light a candle than to curse the darkness.

I’m honored to be in such company that is adding light to the autism conversation…
