The Autism Devotion Project

I just wanted to spend a few minutes discussing the Autism Devotion project and highlighting some of the fantastic posts we've had so far;

The aims of the project
To highlight concrete examples of situations where people with Autism, including Aspergers syndrome, have demonstrated emotion or empathy with particular focus on situations in which those emotions may not have been recognised.

It is hoped that parents, siblings, family, friends and co-workers of people on the autism spectrum will be able to use some of these examples to better understand the emotional communication that is taking place in their everyday lives.

The Posts so far

Please have a look at these amazing posts, leave comments, like, Google+, tweet and share around. We want to reach as many people as possible.  Also; if I've missed anyone, please let me know.

On "This is not what I signed up for"

If you would like to be a part of this initiative, it's easy, just write a blog post which is along the general lines of the project topic described above and post it on your blog.   You're welcome to use the graphic at the top of this page.  Tweets should include the hashtag #AutismDevotion  

If you're a blogger who writes about Autism and/or Asperger's syndrome, you might want to consider joining the Autism Bloggers group on facebook.  Contact me for more information.
