“WH..WH..WHAAAT??”

That’s WHAT my friend James said when I told him something very cool. Something I was UNAWARE of. That in Australia they have an award event called Autism SA Recognition Awards” to celebrate and honor the spectrum. WOW!! We were both speechless. He said “Really??” James is 24 has autism and is fairly high functioning. He was literally taken aback!! Me too. We both said…”COOL,” in UNISON!!

Recently I became aware of an Australian woman named Allison Dix.She is a busy lady with twin boys with autism. Her11 yr old daughter Kristie has asperger syndrome and sings like an absolute angel.I happened upon her performance at this AWARDS EVENT! Which led me to discover Kristie’s Mom Allison and her site http://www.rainbowlandautismservices.blogspot.com/ at the end of this article PLEASE watch

Kristie Dix’ talented Performance! Allison and ALL under her Amazing RAINBOW are doing great work toward GAINING MORE AUTISM AWARENESS!! I have barely had a chance to research them and will hopefully be speaking to and about them VERY SOON! As I said a few blogs back AUSTRALIANS are not “Down Under.” They are “UP Above.” ! Far and away!!

I am so glad to see that we will have some great examples to pattern after!! What a day it will be when our family members on the SPECTRUM are accepted and understood to this degree! Celebrated EVEN ! I also came across yet another Australian Accomplishment. A full-blown Acting Co. writers, creators, actors and more. Telling THEIR stories. How incredibly informative entertaining and INSPIRATIONAL ! To say the very least. America likes to think that we are CUTTING EDGE on many issues. Well, on this important issue we are working with a DULL BLADE!

We have no problem awarding celebrities over here in the U.S. ~right and left. The list of award shows grow every year. So many that they can’t even televise them all. That is alot because, we know how they love to televise themselves. Now, yes… these people create amazing realities. They should be commended and applauded!! But AWARDED… every time they turn around for, ‘CREATING’ REALITY?!!! How about realizing REALITY and helping to CREATE Artistic Equality and Harmony? I would like to award someone for that!

Well we do have SOME creative arts going and that is where the momentum must continue ! There is a GREAT SHOW “Autism Sings” coming on May 5th…at the Canyon Club in Agoura Hills visit Joanne Lara’s website for info http://www.autismmovementtherapy.com I also have info on that on my blog titled “MUSIC SOOTHES…” Some of you may have seen last years HBO Documentary “Autism the Musical”…Very cool, Very needed!! One of the boys from the documentary coincedentally named “Wyatt” is also in “Autism Sings!”

The need to create to feel self worth is INSTINCTUAL. It is to be respected and cultivated. The days of just shuffling these kids from one gruelling endeavor to the next needs to cease or slow-up. Let these kids do the ARTS. Let these kids PLAY BALL! As I heard on the Australian news report I posted a few days ago …take them out in to NATURE! These are three therapies we can ALL TRY on a limited budget!! It is our duty to our beloved individuals on the spectrum…let them be as mainstream as they are comfortable with. Once they are out in the world creating… by writing, singing, acting, painting, playing teamsports or more.The sky IS THEIR LIMIT!!

It is their right . Their instinct to feel that they are contributing and serving a purpose in life! We need to make these HIGHWAYS available for our amazingly talented and insightful A.S.D. family members. And…AWARD THEM Accordingly!! BRAVO !!
