Greetings Everyone ~
March has been a hectic month and now comes the busy time for us autism families - April, which is autism awareness month. I have purchased new shirts for my nonverbal son Matthew to wear from stores on zazzle and cafe press. I got some notecards and other items I will be writing on soon.
Here's the latest article from the Autism Spectrum Disorders site at BellaOnline.com.

I want to let you know of a gluten free twitter party I have organized for this Friday, April 3rd, which coincides with my 49th birthday. The times are 9AM, 1PM and 7:30 PM PST. This is on www.twitter.com
The details, prizes, panel members are posted on my blog
I hope to see you there - twitter is a micro blogging social media site that uses 140 characters to tweet what you are doing. This is a great networking site to meet other autism families. I have listings of resources and other connections here - http://autismfamily.tumblr.com
Be sure to check out www.savvyauntie.com Wednesday, April 1st for an article by me on autism awareness month.
MEDIA NOTE - I do not agree with Jenny McCarthy, have issues with the terminology she uses, but she has a new book out and going on a media blitz - so be on the lookout. I like to write down what she says so I know how to counter attack when those comments from strangers start comparing my kids to her son. We have been an autismfamily for 11 years now.
This also gives us the opportunity to blog and share our stories while she is trotting around the country with her message
Book title - Healing and Preventing Autism: A Complete Guide by Jenny McCarthy and Dr. Jerry Kartzine

I hope to be posting many articles this April to share about autism and reviews on products that includes games, food items and books. I hope that worm that is due to hit computers tomorrow is not a disaster and bypasses this computer. Good luck and Happy April Fools Day
