Twelve Years of Writing on Autism
|One of Steve Heller's fabulous robotic creations|
I've learned a lot about the medical and social challenges many of us face and I'm proud to serve on government committees to make plans to address our many needs. I'm also proud to be part of the first initiatives to teach neurodiversity as culture in American colleges. Now I'm eager to see more results!
