As a mother, I will never give up on my child. As a mother of a child who has autism, I will never give up hope.
I look into his eyes and I see all the potential that he has to offer to this beautiful world and I just know that one day the world can see what I see.

Follow my blog as I share my life and my experiences as a person who loves someone with autism.

Communication Shutdown

Can you get by without Facebook or Twitter for 1 day?

Social communication is one of the biggest challenges for people with autism. On November 1st, 2010, join the shutdown to have some idea of what it’s like to be a person with autism by not logging onto your Facebook or Twitter.

Communication Shutdown is a global fundraising campaign that has asked social networking users to log off from all online communications for a day (November 1st, 2010) to encourage a greater understanding of people with autism who find social communication a challenge. An app is available for a small $5 donation that will let your Facebook friends and others know why you’re not online. The donation will go towards an autism-based charity in your country.

Communication Shutdown are proudly joining the campaign and will not be online Facebook or Twitter on November 1st, 2010. We will also be going one step further and not have a blog for that day.
