Children with autism: help raise awareness
The other day, I got an e-mail from a woman who'd helped launch a new website and campaign, Autism 151. One in 150 kids is diagnosed with autism; the "1" in the site's title signifies one community of hope. The site's goal is to collect 150 videos about kids with autism in the name of inspiration. It's an offshoot of Kyle's Treehouse, an online resource for families living with autism. It was started by parents whose son, Kyle, was diagnosed with autism in 1998 (here he is with his mom, Jen).
Please send send this link to anyone who might be interested, it's such a worthy project.
