Ido in Autismland

Here is my NBC piece. I hope you like it.


It has been a long time since I posted a blog. The purpose of this blog is to express the truth I have experienced in Autismland. I felt happy I had the opportunity to help other people with autism, or their parents, or specialists. To my joy, I have received feedback that my book or blog has transformed the way people see their kids. The feedback from students in grad school and some professionals has also made me hopeful about the future. It is so important for professionals and parents to hear the point-of-view of people with autism. The irony is that we are generally not able to communicate in any of the usual modalities of speaking, writing, gesture, or even facial expressions, so the ability to explain is not yet available to everyone, though I hope one day it will be. Because the message is not mine alone I hope to be presenting the words of other non-verbal people with autism on this blog, as well as parents and professionals. Stay tuned.

My Radio Interview for Autism awareness Month

Here is a playable link to the radio interview my mother and I did with Autism Spectrum Therapies in Honor of Autism Awareness month. My interview starts about ten minutes into the broadcast. My segment was pre-recorded because otherwise there would have been  a lot of silence while I typed my replies.
Hope you like it.
