Jim asked us if we could share his website featuring autistic artists. We certainly can! He also said that he finds all our artists amazing and that he has been a bit busy, but that he will add more artists to his website soon. Thank you, Jim, and congratulations on your commitment!
Stand up to bullying! You can do it! Bullying is bad, really bad, not a game. If you have problems, love is the answer, not bullying.
Absolutely true… You do disappear somehow when you are like everybody else, so be yourself! 🙂
Sad, really sad… And unfortunately not an isolated case. We even know of autistic students who were invited to organize a party and then nobody went to the party.
We have to keep fighting to make people understand we are just different, not less, and sometimes we are even more. There is nothing wrong with being different, absolutely nothing! If anything, there is something wrong with being unable to love those who are different.
Please Stand By is a new movie about a genius autistic woman starring Dakota Fanning and Helen Hunt. We haven’t watched it yet, but in just a few days it has received very good reviews and has a ranking of 8.2 on IMDb. Its official release was on the 27th of October, but it’s not out in theaters yet (apparently it will be in January 2018). We look forward to watching it in person!
Very interesting article, and quite true, as we can see from the extraordinary creativity of many autistic people. Rock on!
