The Joy of Autism has been in operation since 2005 with over 500 posts written.

because finding joy doesn't come without struggle;
because the point is to find it;
because if an autistic person calls autism their way of being, not an illness, then it is;
because every human has value and is a joy;
because despite inhumane acts, I believe in humanity;
but most of all, because of my son Adam.


This blog's articles are only down temporarily as the site will be redesigned. This blog has been given numerous awards, as well as listed in the top 10 autism blogs as well as the top 100 health blogs. My hope is to refine the blog and you can help me do so. The old posts which have been used for academic purposes, will be up again in an archive.

Please, if you have some time, fill out the poll below to help me with the new format. I would also appreciate your comments if you have anything extra to add.

This Blog is Coming Back!

I know many of you are emailing me about my blog which discusses autism, disability in a critical context, and of course, how Adam and I experience many aspects of disability and society on a real-life level.

We are reconstructing a better, prettier don't give up on checking in regularly, although this may take a few weeks. All the material from that former site will be in the new site.

Thanks for your patience and understanding.
