That is why we wanted to share John Franklin Stephen’s blog post with you today.
A diagnosis is a classification for a cluster of symptoms exhibited by enough people on the planet to warrant a name. It is an explanation, not an excuse, a reason, a limitation or a character flaw. We are clinicians who bear witness to our clients’ courageous resilience living in a world that often excludes people with neurological differences. Somehow, diagnostic terms have been woven into our common vernacular by the misinformed to depict and describe character flaws.
We are two friends that John Franklin has not met yet who believe that We The People, armed with kindness, respect and thoughtful eloquence will change the conversation and build awareness to include Neurological Differences in our thoughts, in our words and in our actions.

Tomorrow, October 24th is National Take Back Your Time Day.
We worked with a caregiver years ago who told us the cornerstone to her positive attitude was the 10 minutes she took each day for a cup of tea and an article from her favorite magazine.
So tomorrow, we give you permission to give yourself care and take 10 guilt-free minutes for you.
Cheers to you!

For those of us in the field for a few moons, it was exciting to see the number of people supporting Autism and Autism Speaks. We are humbled by the families and their resolve to make the world Autism friendly. We are grateful for involvement of the business community.
