I promise my next post will actually be technical in nature!
However, Autism Speaks spotlighted an MSNBC video segment on Imus' show that speaks for itself (and for my youngest son). The video explains our lives in a way that most of we parents of children with autism can't (or don't have time) to articulate to you. If you've got a few minutes, please watch Autism Every Day. With so much recent progress and publicity focused on the challenges of the epidemic, this is the kind of story can reenergize you and recommit you to the mission.
A huge, enormous, shameless THANK YOU to Microsoft for being the first employer in the USA to pay for and actively support therapy for dependents with autism and for just being a great place to work.
