TAAProject in the Media

Here are some of the clips I could get from the Joy of Autism: Redefining Ability and Qualtiy of Life event and The Autism Acceptance Project. What's missing here is Gill Deacon's beautiful introduction of me prior to this interview, in which she uses the story by Emily Pearl Kingsly: Welcome to Holland. It was a lovely introduction and did put a tear in my eye. You might also want to read this story Farewell to Holland, a response by another parent to that story,which is also terrific.

Also missing is the ten minute interview on CP24 with Anne Rohmer.

On December 31st, Michael Moon's interview will appear on Fairchild TV. It is really important that more autistic people have access to the media.

So I notice you don't say whether you are continuing to vaccinate your son? Have you continued to do so?

Yes, Adam has received all of his vaccinations on time. I continue to do so.

Great job of reaching out to pro-cure parents by discussing how you also worried about vaccinations and thought about ABA. By showing that you understand their concerns, you've encouraged them to take the time to look more closely at your point of view.
