ANCA Naturally Autistic in Gibsons, B.C. Canada at the Sunny Crest mall, and AutismHWY.com at The Village Eatery in Glendora Cal. U.S.A.!! Passing out information and GOOD NEWS about the Autistic Community! How grand!!
I was delighted to see the children coloring the pages as they waited for their delicious meals! Wyatt tried a Monte Cristo for the first time. Delicious and NEW just like this Campaign!! Autistic People stepping up to contribute to this world’s awareness. The results will be astonishing I am sure. ASD+NT= PUZZLE SOLVED!

We will soon have an AutismHWY.com Blogradio show on fridays to keep up with ALL THE FUN! So be thinking creatively for AWARENESS !! It is really the way to go!! Erik Estabrook did just that!! Check out this EPIC POEM he wrote…read it with a “Rap~Vibe”…..
You look at me and say retard, simpleton,
but my wheels are in motion,
brace yourself for this poetic mind explosion,
Why bring in the norm,
when we are so much better?
when weathering the storm I don’t even need a sweater,
why when you see me do you think in numbers and letters?
hate starts in the heart and multiplies when you feel you know better,
Are you righter than I?
because I’m a righteous guy,
the magnetic output of a thunderstorm passing by,
look again if you see anything but friend,
my mind is a fountain where wellsprings blossom land to land,
I’m the spring birth of your aura,
yet you’ll try to ignore me,
I’m the newborn eyes of love unfolding,
Yet you’ll put me down,
because your in a mold,
by your tree molding,
I’m an earth-bound star,
last the crash,
and we’ll embark on this journey. (autism awareness)

It is ALL we can do. We were born, we are, and we grow. Inside and out. In all shapes and directions. That is EXACTLY what makes life so damn interesting!! Some allow the boundaries to really soar, While others ground themselves. That my friends is the human condition in a “Nutshell!” All except for the inevitable “passing on”. But, that is all in good time. We are speaking about the HERE AND NOW!!
So you get that big mean nasty Diagnosis…The “A”~Word. AUTISM! What now?? Times have changed in the last 10 yrs. Now parents are given a cohesive packet of information and in some cases an informative DVD! Jon Hope at my San
Gabriel/Pomona Regional center shared with me the nice package he has implemented for my area! Still though you feel adrift. When you realize that your child is impacted in such a way. Such a way …that their future is NOT THEIR OWN.
If you allow THAT reality to impact your daily life it can be detrimental. I move on from that idea…and realize that it is my destiny. A fun destiny with my child …for LIFE! We will evolve naturally. I with my child!!Granted it won’t be anything like a “typical life” …but, as life moves into this 21st century less and less seems “TYPICAL” anyway!! Life experiences have a way of morphing into the future. The future that is shifting and changing even as we speak! One of my favorite sayings from my late-father says it all!! “Nothing is constant except change!”
Thus we land back at the original concept. “Evolving Naturally.” This is the process we go through. Diagnosis… a moment (or 2~ or 3) of denial…and then attack plan. Hopefully, we try, and try & TRY and learn, and learn & LEARN. Because there are so many TRAINS SCHOOLS of thought!! ‘CHOO~ CHOO’…&…’A B C~ 1 -2-3′!! Your family can then pick and choose what works best for you and your ASD individual!! “Finding your Formula“…to help you all EVOLVE~ NATURALLY!! At ANCA Naturally autistic.com Leo Gregory has created an amazing resource over these last 15 years!!
This organization is cutting edge!! A no-nonsense APPROACH to ASD issues! There is much to be learned and utilized on every inch of this website! Please peruse and enlighten your lives!! Thank you to EVERYONE AT ANCA!!
We are so looking forward to ANCA’s NATURALLY AUTISTIC AWARDS event on October 30th this year. What an amazing moment that will be for so many deserving and appreciative individuals! Deserving of this CELEBRATION of their service and their Many TALENTS!! BRAVO to ALL INVOLVED!!
