Revolution Health Conference Call

I participated in absentia in this. Unfortunately I had another function but here it is for the rest of you to listen: Revolution Health.

Thanks to Dr. Michael Weiss, a developmental psycologist in Connecticut; Dr. Robin Chernoff, a pediatric developmental specialist in Maryland; blogger Autism Diva; Kathleen Seidel of Neurodiversity; and Jan B of Just a Mom, That’s More Than Enough and Madeline McEwen-Asker of Whitterer on Autism and Kristina Chew of Autism Vox. What a great way to pull people and this dialogue together. Special thanks to Cynthia Samuels for bringing everyone together.

You forgot to mention an incredible mother and autism advocate, Christina Chew of AutismVox.com too. Great to finally hear voices of some awesome bloggers.

Unfortunately no. I was asked but I had a previous engagement so I submitted my questions for discussion which you can hear.

What I wasn't invited? What a surprise.

On a serious note, the neurodiversity movement might do better if it actually listened to a diverse range of opinions and perspectives.

Harold,

Please, tell me that is somehow a typo and that you don't actually have the lack of self awareness necessary to keep you from being that much of a blatant hypocrite in public.

The only autistics or parents you'll bother to listen to are the ones that agree with you that we're a horror that must be removed from future existence if at all possible.
