Hello, again, dear Spectrumites!
Yes, I know the Holidays were… hectic… for some.
But, seizure-warnings aside, (and by the way, WARNING! THE ABOVE IMAGE MAY NOT BE SUITABLE FOR READERS WITH EPILEPSY, CHILDHOOD FEARS OF THE NOSTALGIA CRITIC, OR GENERAL FAITH IN CHRISTIANITY, AND MAY CAUSE SEIZURES, ANXIETY, OR GENERAL OFFENSE AT THE ASPIE DIALOGUES AND THE NOSTALGIA CRITIC. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.)
Any way, all seizure-warnings aside, the Aspie Dialogues has fully transitioned over to WordPress.org now and is ready to take on 2017 after a year that had many wondering…
What the HFIL was that?!
2016 was a year that many of us would much rather forget.
And there lies the Million-Dollar Question:
What can we do to help those who are going to be impacted the most by his policies?
…Or put into terms more approachable by The Aspie Dialogues…
What can we do to help those Spectrumites who are going to be impacted the most by his policies, such as the Republican stance on repealing the Affordable Care Act? Adults on the Spectrum find it hard enough to find support and resources for their Autism! How can we fight back?
I’ve always been a proponent of telling it like it is. Right now, we need everyone, and I mean EVERYONE reading this to take a stand and tell it like it is.
That’s why I’m starting early with promoting the 2017 Putting the Pieces Together Campaign.
It will have the same deadline as last year’s and I hope to hear from more people than I did last year.
For this year’s challenge, (and parents, legal guardians, and caregivers, please jump in on this, too!), I want all the adults on the Autism Spectrum to weigh in on the debate by sharing their stories with the world with the following questions in mind:
What has been your experiences in trying to obtain support and resources for your Autism Spectrum Disorder since aging out of the system and “falling off the cliff?” Has it been an easy time or a hard time? What do you attribute to that?
Please consult the Challenge page for more information.
The world’s turning into a scary place, but we can start to make it better, one step at a time, when we stand together.
Let’s make 2017 better than 2016. By far.
May you find peace with yourselves, within yourselves. Rock on.
