April is Autism Awareness Month

Some information and links for you.

Spread the word:

John Elder Robison, writer-friend and author of Look Me in the Eye: My Life with Asperger's , will be the keynote speaker at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine Seaver Autism Conference on Sunday April 19th, from 1:30 - 2:30. Please give him your support, if you're able. Here's a link to the event on Facebook.

Autism Speaks has an extensive list of events on their website. By supporting this non-profit, you will be contributing to Autism therapy, research, and resources. Please do.

My toddler was flipping through the May 2009 edition of Cookie Magazine in search for babies doing silly things when he came across a review of Kauzbots. He instantly asked for the "BRIGHT YELLOW ONE!!!" Guess what? Karthy, also known as the BRIGHT YELLOW ONE!!!, is passionate about autism awareness. 10% of his proceeds go to TACA. Take a look at all of the different bots. At $25 a piece, these make adorable, feel-good presents. Check them out!

And another thing! Earth Day is next week and I wanted to remind you of the give-away I'm hosting. Visit The Hero Complex on April 22, 2009 and use the Comment section to tell me how you’re teaching your kids about making the Earth a better place. I’ll pick my favorite and send you a pair of books from World Tree Day and Mapping the World Tree, featuring characters from the show It’s a Big, Big World. Can’t wait to read your comments!

Thanks for reading,
