100 signatures-I have experienced a form of telepathy



As you know Tom, like many of us believed a form of telepathy was part of the process.
I have been motivated to collect signatures for a statement that can be seen and used publicly.  It should only be signed by those who want to stand up and be counted. Perhaps in time it can be used to gain attention by those interested in consciousness and to provide better family support and services for these often underserved people on the spectrum.


If you wish to sign, you can do so here or email me.  Please pass on to anyone else who may want to sign.  It is time to stand up and be counted.  

Yes, I have experienced or witnessed a form of telepathy with a person or persons with autism.

Current list:
1. Mary Ann Harrington 2. Jose Marquez 3. Arthur Golden 4. Sue Near 5. William Stillman 
6. Desdemone Hirsh 7. Lori Shayer  8. Gail Iris Gillingham Wylie, (. Laura Lambert Hirsch, 10. Char Brandl 11. Tami Zinc Duncan 12. Swapna Akerkar Vaidya… 13.

Autism-Doorway to Consciousness

Tom's recent passing has motivated me to get active once again.  I know he wished he could have accomplished
more as I am sure many of us feel.  He was a passionate advocate and so wanted people to have the opportunity to
talk to the auties and experience what he had. 

I have created a new facebook group:  Autism-Doorway to Consciousness  It is an open group
I want people on this particular group to have the freedom and courage  to express their experiences
publicly.  I have been at this a long time and sincerely believe fear,  secrecy, hidden agendas,  and
alliances have thwarted progress.  I have seen so many fearful people unwilling to take the risk of
standing up and being counted.  I have seen others who only accept ideas that fuel their own personal
agendas or interpretation of truth, or those they partner with without examining the difficult
questions.  Truthfully, I do not believe any of us truly understands what is occurring. There is so much to
learn about these currently inexplicable phenomena. 

What I am trying to attract a small group of  people, interested in consciousness. The  curious people
willing to question, listen  and learn from these magnificent souls so ready and willing to teach us.  

Autism-Doorway to Consciousness

So if you are interested in joining this group let me know.  You can then send me a friend request on facebook 
and I will add you to the list.  I also think you can probably sign up on your own.  

Thank you so much,
Mary Ann

Tom Smith (autismlist founder) has passed away



Hi all,


I am Zac Smith, Tom Smith's son.  Yesterday, Tom passed away after a battle with Lung Cancer.


I know he was active on these groups, and one of his final wishes was that they would carry on as usual, with me watching to make sure everything goes smoothly.


My dad was so passionate a bout his autism advocacy, and I hope that you all realized that and were able to take some bit of inspiration or knowledge from his life's work.


He wasn't afraid to speak his mind or offend people, but through all that he was a very caring, loving, and kind man.  I hope that this group will be able to carry on his memory and spirit after his passing.


Thank you all for contributing. It meant the world to him...


Zac

Fwd: One-day online autism conference with Anna Kennedy on March 17, 2014






www.awares.org/conferences

We are delighted to announce that the latest in our series of monthly one-day online autism conferences is with Anna Kennedy.  Join us next Monday (March 17, 2014) to put your questions directly online to Anna, who is a leading British autism campaigner, lobbyist, author and mother of two children on the spectrum.

Register right now in the Awares Conference Centre (www.awares.org/conferences)

Teesside University Honorary Graduate Anna Kennedy OBE is the mother of two boys, Patrick and Angelo, who are both affected by autism. In 1999, having been turned away by no fewer than 26 special needs schools when searching for appropriate educational facilities for her sons, she decided to take matters into her own hands and remortgaged her home to transform a derelict council building in Middlesex, West London into Hillingdon Manor School. The school, which is now a centre of excellence for children and young adults with autism, has earned considerable recognition for its outstanding work and early in its life caught the imagination of Esther Rantzen who is now Hillingdon Manor's patron. In 2008, Anna co-authored her best-selling biography 'Not Stupid' which poignantly portrayed her struggle to find appropriate provision for her boys - a story which will be familiar to many parents who feel they could not get what they felt their children needed from the local education authority. Anna's story appeared as an hour long BBC 'pick of the day' Video Diary documentary and her story has been featured in numerous magazines and newspapers, including the Times Educational Supplement, The Times, The Observer, The Guardian, The Daily Mirror and The Daily Mail. Anna is regularly invited to speak at conferences on the subject of autism and has also taken part in many high profile TV talk shows, debates and news programmes. Recently, Anna met with the Department of Health to share results of their charities survey on autism diagnosis. Anna will share these results and feedback at her presentation in April at the University. In 2008, she merged her school with Hillcrest Autism Services to gain access to greater resources to continue her work. Anna went on to win 'Woman of the Year' in 2009, an award run in conjunction with The Observer newspaper and during the same year was also the recipient of the coveted Institute of Directors (IOD) Chairman's special award for outstanding contribution to the community. Samantha Cameron named her the Daily Mail's most Inspirational Woman of the Year 2010 and most recently Tesco Mum of the Year 2013. In November 2013, Anna, who is from Middlesbrough, received an Honorary Doctor in Professional Achievement from the University.

For further details about this and all other Awares online conferences - hosted by Autism Cymru, Wales's pioneering national charity for autism and run by myself, Adam Feinstein - please contact me at:  adam <at> autismcymru.org

Best wishes,

Adam Feinstein

Blake made the cover of Transitions by Autism Notebook



Blake made the cover of Transitions by Autism Notebook. And inside I wrote an article on Micro-Enterprise for adults with autism. All photos of Blake are by Hunter Herskowitz. Hope you enjoy the article. It's important that we really put a lot of time and attention to the issue of employment and purposeful living for our adult (or soon to be adult) loved ones on the spectrum. It's not an easy transition!!
 
 
Enjoy
