Trigger warning: child abuse, child murder, disabled abuse, Nazi genocide, euthanasia, ablest language Another autistic child killed by a parent. A lot of people I follow on the interwebs will say this is about lack of services or a parent pushed too far. I think it's about the same things that led white men to…

The Giving Jar-2 Kids Teach Their Dad Something

It's practically spring and here I am writing about something that happened at Christmastime. Why the heck am I writing about Christmas now? I'll put it down to processing a nagging thought. Over a year ago, I decided we should have a new family tradition. What if the kids gave something before getting something on…

Dissent and Autistic Communities

Early on in my career as a fundraiser, I heard about this amazing management expert who thought businesses could learn a lot about managing from charities. Peter Drucker was his name and there was always at least one slide in any presentation on fundraising way back then that had a quote from him. The only…

3 Reasons Why Canadians (and Everyone Else) Should Stop Using the 1 in 68 Autism Stat (For Now)

Well, well, well. Just in time for World Autism Awareness Day, there is a very highly publicized new stat about autism. This number will be used and referred to many times on April 2, 2014. It will be etched in stone and be forever called the "autism rate" or "rate of autism." The media coverage of…

Goodbye IBI, Hello School Again

This week has arrived. It was always going to arrive. It's probably more correct to say, this week was always going to arrive again. My son began full day school again this week. For two and a half years he has been working hard at Intensive Behaviour Intervention (IBI). That's the only publicly-funded option for…

The Giving Jar

Christmas morning came this year with something a little different. The presents were under the tree--that was the same as always. And it wasn't that anyone woke up too early or was too impatient to go downstairs to see what they received. Although hundreds of thousands of people in our province were without power following…

Our First Concert with Bobs and Lolo

This may be uncomfortable for some to read: I listen to some of my twins' music even when they aren't here. When my oldest daughter was younger, from time to time I would play Bananaphone by Raffi. There were some really lovely songs on that cd. These days I pop in Bobs and Lolo, specifically…

Autism and Crime in 2012

It's the end of the year and that most frustrating season in news reporting is upon us. Between Christmas and New Year's Day the media look back or count things up or both. It seems that every year the time for stats and retrospectives starts earlier and earlier, much like Christmas sales seem to start…
