    Thanks for the reminder that awareness continues to be a double-edged sword. Remember the novel, To Kill a Mockingbird? I always thought that Arthur (Boo) Radley was on the spectrum and that Scout got a very clear lesson in the difference between awareness mixed with ignorance versus awareness mixed with reality. We need to remove the ignorance — one day at a time.

    “actually giving awareness that autism isn’t just something that affects kids, that it certainly isn’t any sort of death sentence, and that even with the occasional odd reaction or atypical behavior, yes, we’re people too.”

    That’s the kind of awareness I would like to see more of too.

    “We’re here. We’re weird. Get used to it.” Right on!
