It’s FAN’flippin’TASTIC!!

I couldnt resist! That is how we are  feeling like shouting it from the roof-tops down. “Here we are and we are coming at ya!”A whole NEW generation of Autistic People the likes of~ this world has never seen! ….Well, honestly they have. They just didn’t know what they were looking at!! ie: Albert Einstein,  Isaac Newton, Thomas Jefferson, Charles Darwin, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Michelangelo etc…etc…lol!

The founders of ANCA Naturally Autistic should be lauded for their tenacity and lifetime vision. The vision of a “Real World” for Autistic people to live in. A world dictated by nature and a more comfortable approach for successes. Not the “Appropriate Behavior” warriors so harsh and unknowing. It is a shift in perceptions. A change in dynamics. Where understanding becomes the approach. Not uncomfortable conformity. It is a balance that demands to be achieved. The balance that Leonora Gregory Collura and Charlie Collura have created at Naturally Autistic ANCA. Now looking to share that balancing act GLOBALLY!

Their rich blend of lives experiences and their Autistic minds create a direct and elegant approach. ‘Understanding the paradigm from the inside out’ is so quintescentially ANCA! Exactly why they trademarked the phrase in the 90′s! “The inside-out”, where it makes the most sense to start. More correct information from an inside source. Now joined with many voices from the spectrum speaking up to pool resources. Sharing the more useful information about Autism and the elaborate nature of it all. The world’s senses will now experience the full flavor. Not just the vanilla that everyone has been spoon fed by non-Autistic minds. The stereotypical picture we have all seen of the sad Autistic child sitting all alone as the other kids bicker and fight, while laughing and playing in the background. Let’s tell the real story! That like life, Autism comes in many more flavors than Vanilla !  Autistic people are NOT stereotypes they are flesh and blood people. Our population is made up of real people~ with real talent ~ that have real challenges ~ and most importantly are really determined to be understood, accepted and aknowledged !!   THAT is the real story….

  The story that will be told on Friday, Saturday and Sunday~ Sept 23rd, 24th, & 25th. In Vancouver , B.C. Canada 2011 @ The 2nd ANNUAL INT’L NATURALLY AUTISTIC PEOPLE AWARDS & CONVENTION 

Read the program here in an 8 PAGE~FLIP-FORMAT~….

UTTERLY FANTASTIC…like I said !! & such sensory fun  to FLIP ~the Pages!! 

 

The quality and passion driving these artists is undeniable!! Such beauty and strength the future holds for them. A Flip of the Self-Esteem switch has happened and there is no turning it off!!. Just AWESOME!  The value and worth within the community will stimulate the planet…a planet that needs cognition stimulation and economic growth. New minds with differing perspectives are needed as demonstrated  by this years ~Keynote speaker & Workshop leader Academic Lars Perner. We had a fascinating conversation about  just that on our radio show last week. Listen in here…
