World Autism Day

The New York Times published a wonderful interactive today in observance of World Autism Day. It portrays the experience of autism from six different voices, with a slideshow for each. There's a lot to think about there. I could see this resource being used with teens or adults who are ready to talk about their diagnosis. From a technology perspective, I was impressed by the perspective of Mac Dean, 15, who talks about how difficult conversation can be, but how video games (and playing/communicating with others) have helped him feel connected.

Thank you to Social Thinking's Facebook Page for posting this resource.
