How was it? Even more important, how are the HORMONES???

I'm going to take the positive vein, and remind us all that at the very least, people are learning what Autism is. (See, Oprah, I'm wearing my no complaining bracelet!)
Rosie did a fine job getting it out there (I think she may be VERY familiar with the Spectrum, if you understand my meaning. She speaks the lingo VERY well) though she only skimmed the surface, and she was moving at a very fast clip. She filled an entire hour, and tackled about 1/10 of the information available. I believe that she was trying to give a face to Autism - not conquer the Insurance companies, the school systems, or even the therapies available. Had she done that, she would have lost the focus of the show, which was humanization.

Oprah is a reasonable person. Then again she did have Tom Cruise jumping on her sofa. I'm going to give her all of the positive energy and visualization I can, and trust that she will do right by us, by our kids.

I'd say that this is a wake up call for all of us to do what we can to enlighten and inspire any way WE can. And not just because it's April. I feel like I need to start talking EVERY DAY to my students, my fellow parents at the swings, teachers. It's up to me.


It seems there is something on every night relating to Autism and how terrified everyone is. Thanks for the program notes though, I will tune in to ABC tonight to check it out. I'm always waiting to hear something new. I hope Oprah can manage to do a better job than Rosie.
I also have to confess that I do not know much about RDI, but I'm fairly new to all of this.
