December 9 2008 Autism Spectrum Disorders Newsletter


Greetings Everyone ~

It has been a bit hectic in my household as I prepare final touches on autism twitter day, which takes place next Tuesday, December 16th. Tomorrow I am going to UCLA Ronald Reagan Medical Center to visit another special needs Mom who was diagnosed with Leukemia on Thanksgiving Day. I did a fundraiser on my blog and picking up some gift cards on my way over there.

Earlier tonight while watching World News with Charles Gibson on ABC I saw the announcement that tomorrow night is a segment on autism. Autism Answers from Medical Experts. The show airs at 6:30 PM EST/PST.

On Thursday is a repeat of a wonderful story of twin autistic savants Kay & Flo. This is on Discovery Health at 8:00 PM and 11:00 PM. I set an email reminder at their site. Nicholas and I watched this a few weeks back one Sunday and I wanted to tape it, but took tape out since I did not want to hog tv for one hour as Matthew had video in the other one. Five minutes into the show I realized my mistake. The sisters are in their early 50s and from NJ, same as me.

Here is the site info -

Here is my blog post on the show - a must see and tape it

Have you seen the trailer for The Black Balloon yet or read any of the reviews? This is such a great performance of the actors and I base this on a two minute clip. It has won AFI awards and is based on true story of autism. The writer has two brothers on the spectrum.
