Need Your Input

Sorry I have not been as regular with this blog as normal. I have been fighting a flu bug and working on a big project.

In a prior post I wrote about my sense that awareness of what we experience in day to day life would help bring about acceptance and better support for our families. I was surprised by the reactions to the dvd Autism Everyday by Autism Speaks. I am trying to understand this controversy.

I did an interview recently with a reporter who is doing a piece about how the media can do a better job of covering disabilities. My position was that the media could help bring about awareness and acceptance. With the above controversy, I am not sure that would be desirable to all parents.

I would like to hear what you think. Please either comment to this post or email me privately (if you prefer).

Until next time,
