You People Amaze Me

DoC of Autism Street. made me cry this morning…and okay, blush too….

I can’t thank you enough for your kind words, James. Yesterday, I got a little cheeky on as Kathleen wrote a compelling title to her exceptional post “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire.” Of course, Kathleen’s content is NEVER cheeky (well, not at least without a ton of intelligent research behind it). I’ve met Kathleen — she is sweet, smart, thorough and I trust her judgement. Kathleen cares about people. I can attest to that.

James, you shocked me with your post this morning over that silly comment of mine. But thank you. I will ditto the plug of Jame’s blog here. I’ve heard James speak in San Diego, and let me tell you, he is of professional speaker calibre (I really think you have another career there, James).

Thank you to so many of you who have reached out to me. You really don’t know what it means as I sit in my Toronto home office with gray skies and uncertainty and try to make the best out of it all.

About Me


I’m a PhD candidate at York University, Critical Disability Studies, with a multi-disciplinary background in the arts as a curator and writer. I am the Founder of The Autism Acceptance Project (, and an enamoured mother of my only son who lives with the autism label. I like to write about our journey, critical issues regarding autism in the area of human rights, law, and social justice, as well as reflexive practices in (auto)ethnographic writing about autism.
