For those of you who use Twitter (even those who don't), Bonnie Sayers of Autism Family Adventures has come up with the idea of an Autism Twitter Day on Tuesday December 16 to promote positive awareness of people with autism.
It's a wonderful idea, and I will be tweeting along with everyone participating in this event. My project that day will be to answer questions from people who want to know about autism but don't know how to ask, what to say, what would hurt or offend or who are concerned about using the wrong words.
Enough of that. Don't worry about political correctness or about sounding naive. Just ask--I will answer whatever you want to know, no matter how awkward. I will answer as candidly and completely as I can, in 140 characters or less. Whatever's left will go on this blog.
So if you're on Twitter, please join in. And if not, you can see what's going on by clicking here and entering #ASD in the search box.
The lines are open.
