I've created a Pinterest board about Autism. You can check it out here. I choose pins that are educational or encouraging and a few have an edge of sarcasm. I enjoy the visual environment of Pinterest. Faith Jegede's TedTalk about having brothers with Autism inspired me to create this:

Linking Together Update

Unfortunately November 14 was a typo on the Linking Together brochure. The group was held November 12. If you set aside the third Wednesday, November 19, for Linking Together, you now have a free evening. There will be no group in December. We meet again on January 21, 2015. The group is still welcoming new members.
So far this year we have enjoyed Wendy Johnson explain what criteria are used to formally diagnose Autism. Todd Samuelson and Nicole Stein from CHHS shared ways to communicate your child's needs with school as well as different options for completing high school. Ruth Isaac demonstrated sensory strategies and gave a tour of a children's gym downtown.
