Inclusive

Okay, so today I have two articles to post because each of them in their own way, tell a story about society and how it’s changing for the better. The first one is entitled “Tribeca Win Goes To Film Starring Those On The Spectrum” by Michelle Diament over at Disability Scoop.

The second article is entitled “Beauty Pageant Contestant With Down Syndrome Set To Make Historyby Aimee Blanchette and also over at Disability Scoop via the Star Tribune. It’s nice to see inclusion and diversity becoming more common.

Make it stop

Okay, I saw this video a while ago and I really liked it. It was put out by the National Autistic Society and I think it’s really well done. It’s entitled “Make it Stop”. Like all parents of someone with autism, each individual is different but I think this video gives people a small slice of insight into what those with autism struggle with on perhaps a daily basis.

Medicine & autism

I must say that this article has got me thinking. With my son on two different medications, I’m beginning to think does he need them? I think it’s time to ask his psychiatrist that question the next time we have an appointment.

The article is entitled “Autism’s Drug Problem: Many people on the spectrum take multiple medications, which can lead to serious side effects and may not even be effective” by Lauren Gravitz over at Scientific American.

Teachers

Okay, it’s been a while since I’ve post and it was because of technical issues. So anyway, I want to start back up with an article that I read today and truly enjoyed. It’s entitled “I Actually Thanked a Teacher” by Bob Greene over at the Wall Street Journal.

As usual, the Wall Street Journal has limited access but I was fortunate enough to find most of article over at another blog entitled Live & Learn by David Kanigan and so I thought I would share it that way.

The reason I think I appreciate the article so much is for the fact that how much I appreciate the teachers that have taught my oldest son. Over the years, they’ve always asked how’s he doing? So this article is for all teachers. Thank you!
