February 28 2009 Autism Spectrum Disorders Newsletter


Greetings Everyone -

The last day of February is here. My son Nicholas turns 14 next month. I splurged and got a Kindle 2.0 that arrived yesterday. I got a few autism related books already and love the larger font for reading.

Is anyone attending the CSUN conference - 24th Annual International Technology & Persons with Disabilities March 16-21 at LAX Airport Hotels? I plan to do the free exhibit day on Friday March 20th. This will be my first year, been waiting for ten years when the LAUSD AAC Accessor told me about it, she has spoken there a few times. I am excited to check out the exhibitors:

I will bring my flip video camera that I won earlier this year in a contest to take pics of various exhibits. Here is a pic of the Serval we took with the flip recently at the Los Angeles Zoo

Also the Zoo now has Docent led tours on Thursday afternoons for kids on the autism spectrum. www.lazoo.org for more details.

Here's the latest article from the Autism Spectrum Disorders site at BellaOnline.com.

I am having a gluten free twitter party on Friday, April 3rd - my birthday. There will be panel members at 9AM, 1PM & 7:30 PM PST. There will also be prizes. I am currently seeking any gluten free, and gfcf food products - can be gift certificates. I am also hoping for books and magzines relating to celiac and gfcd to give as prizes. Please contact me if you are interested in donating. It will be heavily promoted on twitter and a blog post for each prize on my blog. I am waiting on a button to be made and then other bloggers will be promoting as well. A google search on "autism twitter day" will show you the type of promotion my last event received. My twitter page is www.twitter.com/autismfamily

Another event I would like to do on twitter is to promote by interviewing authors of newly releasd books on the topic of autism. This can be books that have been released thus far in 2009 or soon to be in the next two months. You may know that Jenny McCarthy has a new book due out end of March, so I want to show there are other sides of autism out there in the media and give authors the opportunity to spotlight their books as the media will be buzzing on Jenny. Feel free to visit www.stopjenny.com if you are interested.

Here is a site for gluten free wristbands

I am also wanting to highlight autism awareness events for April 2009, like I did here in 2008 - http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art55996.asp

Please send any links you may know of or if you are an organization your own company link with details. I have made some purchases lately of autism shirts for my son, some other awareness items from ebay that I will be sharing about. If you sell something unique that promotes autism awareness I am interested in seeing it.

Please visit http://AutismSpectrumDisorders.bellaonline.com for even more great content about Autism Spectrum Disorders.

To participate in free, fun online discussions, this site has a community forum all about Autism Spectrum Disorders located here -

http://forums.bellaonline.com/ubbthreads.php?ubb=postlist&Board=365

I hope to hear from you sometime soon, either in the forum or in response to this email message. I thrive on your feedback!

Have fun passing this message along to family and friends, because we all love free knowledge!
