It’s been a short two months since we’ve launched this blog and so much has happened in that time! We’ve received so many emails, comments and phone calls from readers and met so many new people! It’s been absolutely unbelievable!
A few nights ago I was doing some last minute Christmas shopping at a Winners store here in Ottawa. A few feet away from me were two girls in their late teens or early twenties. They were having a loud conversation that I had no choice but overhear. After enduring this for about 5 minutes I was about to move to a different section when one of them called herself the “R word” for some lame reason.
After reflecting on it I realized that despite the painstaking efforts of many good people, this kind of thing is still happening. More needs to be done and soon. AAO is committed to helping break down the barriers and continue with promoting awareness for our children and everyone’s children.
We will post news of an event for World Autism Day which is coming up on April 2. We hope you’ll join us!
In addition, we’ll be launching two new roadmaps especially for the Ottawa area.
Please visit us in the new year and consider getting involved as a contributor to the website!
Have a magical Christmas and best wishes for the upcoming year!
