Let’s Help Wish Colin a Happy Birthday – How You Can Help

A mother in Kalamazoo set out on a mission to let her son know that he is very loved after he told his mom that he didn't want a birthday party because he didn't have any friends.  This is one of those stories that hits very close to home with me, because Colin has sensory disorders and a form of Aspergers.   This story is also why I love social media.  UPDATE: Colin's disorders were never made public, but he does suffer from something similar to Aspergers.

Mommy Blogger Christy K. – Autism ≠ ‘Rain Man’

One of the difficult things about Autism is that every child on the spectrum is so very different. I would like to think that the days are gone where people hear the word Autism and think of either Dustin Hoffman in “Rain Man” (a savant, which is relatively rare), or a nonverbal child standing in a corner banging his head against the wall.
