Happy Holidays from our Board

Let me introduce to you The Autism Acceptance Project's Board of Directors: Bottom Row from left to right is,

Andrew Brown, Ellen Yack, our new President of the Board in centre, Michael Moon (who was recently featured in The Ottawa Citizen which got cut-off in this online version), my son and honourary board member, Adam Wolfond, Mira Davis-Kelly (part-time assistant and designer of our online newsletter), and myself, Estee Klar-Wolfond.

Top row from left to right is,

Brian Henson, Martine Stonehouse, Jamie Gold (active advisor), Mark Persaud and David Hill.

We look forward to continuing to lecture at schools and universities in our community and abroad, to conducting support groups, and educating governments with regard to the various needs of autistic individuals and to enhance understanding. We also look forward to further developing a very active membership of autistic Canadians at this governance level.

The Board of Directors wishes everyone a peaceful holiday season.

This site is eye-opening! Thank you for your efforts. As a parent of a diagnosed 2-year old, this blog is just the "alternative" perspective I need!
