Site of the Day: The Autism Acceptance Project

By March 19, 2007

Follow me on:

If you've read the blog The Joy of Autism, which I've referenced here from time to time, you may be familiar with The Autism Acceptance Project, founded by the writer of that blog, Estee Klar-Wolfond. The project now has a shiny new Web site on which to showcase artwork, essays, letters, and videos like the one at right of Klar-Wolfond's son, Adam.

According to its mission statment, "The Autism Acceptance Project works to promote acceptance of and accommodations for autistic people in society. The Autism Acceptance Project will bring forth a different and positive view about autism to the public in order to create tolerance and acceptance in the community and to empower parents and autistic people." In addition to the works displayed there, you'll find a listing of upcoming events; resources on autism and advocacy; and a forum for discussing such topics as "Autism in the News" and "Autism and Science."
