In late 2009 the AutismHWY website was in the factory tuning up and preparing to plug into our brand-new electric HWY, the world-wide web! How exciting to find ourselves in a whole ‘new head space.’ In fact…a lot of whole new head spaces. Talk about mind expanding! WoW.
Only knowing my Autistic son and a handful of his Aut classmates throughout those 10 years before the website existed we were ready to get on the HWY to real Autism information. I wanted to meet and greet Autistic people of ALL ages. The things that teachers, professionals and other parents were telling me never rang true. True to the instinctual connection my Autistic son and I have. We knew this new journey would be something spectacular, something unimaginable. Our GPS system was never quite equipped for the vast galaxy of Autistic people… friends, partners and icons we would be on the AutismHWY with. Stellar universal navigations indeed. A vast neuro-universe unto itself. A universe of thought and beautiful patterning. Super natural people we were excited to befriend, work with and learn from.
