…Not the one in China. The one that will be seen in Vancouver British Columbia on the weekend of September 23rd-25th. The wall of support we will build. Adorning this wall with the brilliant images of cutting edge culture! The LOGOS of companies on the frontline of Autism reform. The NEW GUARD if you will. Setting a very positive precedent!
A precedent for change. A change to partnerships not charity. Where support goes both ways…a two way HWY! Business to business. Where your dollars go toward changing the culture…to advertise to the world that your company believes in the strengths and talents of the Autistic Community! Supporting the growth of self esteem in a previously marginalized group. Branding yourselves in history as SUPPORTERS OF POSTIVE CHANGE for Autistic People and their families globally.
The writing will be on the wall!! The vinyl backdrop for the AWARDS PARTICIPANTS to be photographed in front of! A very powerful photo-op! Our AutismHWY “A” will be front and center…IF you would like to “Partner” with us and support success. Send in your sponsorship and get your logo on this great wall. Progressive thinkers paving opportunities for the world. We have to order this backdrop early and we will need your commitments by July 31st in order for your logo to appear on this GREAT WALL! Companies sponsoring after this cut-off date will still get all of the premium advertising which consists of blogradio spots, printed materials; flyers, posters & programs. On -line newsletters, blogs, announcements etc. through numerous websites and all social media.
In my mind the most important place to have our logo is on this GREAT WALL! Aligned with an amazing cast of people, people putting their money where our heart is… into the Autistic Population. Joining us as we march ahead in our own walk. Our walk toward acceptance, understanding, inclusion, appreciation and CELEBRATION!!

An Amazing ARTIST that has become my friend created this beautiful work with this thought provoking title!! It is profound, really. People have things staring them in the face everyday. Seemingly very appearant yet, obviously not seen. This can describe AUTISM. How it feels for US. The parents, families and care-givers.You are essentially operating in 2 REALITIES …1 WORLD!! We walk the tight-rope with our children. With essentially all the worlds professionals. Some aware of ASD’s others~ not so much. Out in the community…our kids need people to not assume they are “typical.” Autism is such that we need to explain the world to our children. AND…explain our children to the world!! We are their “buffers,” their “conduits,” their translators. We are all those things and more. So we see both worlds! Our minds are anything but “Abstract!” lol
That is why Wendy McCormick Lopez is such a wonder. Dealing with a beautiful ASD son. Complicates the daily routine in ANY # of ways… ADD a daughter, family life and a career. Your lucky what even fits in after that!! Well , lucky we are!! Wendy’s work is stunning …take a look for yourself! You will love the feelings that will be evoked!
She has a beautiful soothing style. I love the way her work makes me feel. Very calm very zen…something not always so readily available in spectrum life!! lol …So definitely take a peak at her work. Months ago I asked Wendy if I could use her designs in my home. I have envisioned a zen spa bathroom with this amazing look…
Just STUNNING isn’t it? So much like all of life ~INTERPRETATION is the key!! If you see a great future despite an unwanted diagnosis you can have it. If you see gloom and doom, you are bound to it!! THIS MUCH I HAVE LEARNED!! Sure an ASD Lifestyle is not a bed of roses. We all have a set of challenges we manage. How we rise to that CHALLENGE creativity is where it is at.Let our kids create!! Parents and Teachers across the globe need to realize this and push past the “budget constraints.” is the real test. More and more I am in the belief that
We can accomplish A LOT as passionate caring parents of the SPECTRUM! Grass roots efforts will be popping up!! I am seeing this EVERYWHERE!! Our individuals NEED VENUES!! To create and do what “Comes~Naturally” So get busy planting the seeds for creative futures…invent ways and means in your neighborhoods!! AutismHWY.com will be announcing something SPECIAL in this regard very soon!! As for “Knowing what AUTISM looks like?”… I will hope that in OUR “NEW” Creative FUTURES will start to look a little deeper MULTI~DIMENSIONAL World!! people and see if they really know what they are looking at …in this very

We all have layers and layers of info to share… and for that we need MANY extra lanes!! I guess you can hear my California Freeway mentality! lol Communication has been referred to as a “2~Way Highway” In some cases VERY TRUE!! In the ASD World. Very RARE!! Many, many avenues must be incorporated and used JUST to navigate daily life!
This is a good thing. It adds to the fabric and fun of our lives! Thinking outside of the box.FREEWAY of thought for DIVERSITY!” ASD STYLEHARMONY!! Coming from all walks of “thought” into the mainstream. Living side by side in parallel lanes!! Travelling the HWY’S of our lives! “On the

It is so fitting that California’s Great America Theme Park is holding AUTISM AWARENESS DAY on this auspicious date! When I first heard about this it seemed like a cosmic alignment! Just like the amazing coincidence at the recent EMMY AWARDS!! The cosmic alignment that allowed Miss Temple Grandin to win 5 emmys for her life-story on her BIRTHDAY!! She really is an AWARENESS GIFT that keeps giving!!
Awareness is what we as ASD Families need to GIVE THE WORLD!! Everyone else is too busy with all of the world’s “other matters.” it is so EXCITING that AutismHWY.com is PARTNERING with this awesome AMUSEMENT PARK!! For Great America to plan an event in mid-September is BEAUTIFUL!! Too often people believe awareness is only for Awareness mo. in APRIL! When WE living on the SPECTRUM know that awareness does not stop on MAY DAY!!!
If it does than…HELP!! …MAY DAY !! & S.O.S.!! We need mass mainstream appeal here folks!! There are people out there that don’t even know who Temple Grandin IS ??! Please take the time to watch her AMAZING HBO MOVIE, if you do nothing else!!
So this is why I am SO IMPRESSED with Great America’s AUTISM AWARENESS DAY held on September 11th! Thinking outside of the box! It has been 9 yrs. since the fateful 911 event that rocked human spirits far and wide. An EYE-OPENER to diversity to say the least. A diversity that many were unaware of. People share so many different perceptions, and that gets lost in the shuffle of life!! The perception of AUTISM has been lost in the shuffle of the mainstream. FOR YEARS!! So many times people need something catastrophic or earth-shattering to become aware! How many times have we all noticed that!
AUTISM teaches an important lesson. Much like the events in 2001…You realize what is truly important and what is frivolity!! I say lets concentrate on useful knowledge. It’s about appreciating and learning from the differences we ALL share!
There are no two of us exactly alike. Sure, Noah paired ‘em off by species. But, are there 2 of a kind? Truly? I think not. Has anyone EVER had a spouse, child, sibling, dog, cat or even a horse with the same personality as another? We ALL have a little different experience in the way we process AWARENESS. Children can be taught about diversity while they are young and pliable. Adults not so much! and perceive our worlds.
So, I plan to read my Autism Awareness Books to children on 9~11 in Santa Clara. Hoping to engage their parents as well! The dialogue has to become mainstream! The United States loves to be considered a world leader. In the world of AUTISM we need to pick up the pace for that consideration!! Yes, GREAT STRIDES have been made in genetic discoveries and more. But AWARENESS just seems like a lead balloon sometimes!! GREAT AMERICA is setting a great precedent here! Opening GREAT dialogue on an important issue on a MOST IMPORTANT Day of Honor and Memory and Respect! AutismHWY.com is honored and delighted to be on our way to THIS Autism Awareness Day!!
