Grateful to Dc Story District for letting me share the story (an adapted chapter from the book) about the time Zack intersected with the gang. Please excuse the profanity but it’s necessary to the story, which underscores a serious & salient point about public disclosure of Autism ~ never underestimate the lengths to which the general public will go if accurately informed of the truth.
Indebted to Autism Parenting Magazine & Editor Amy KD Tobik who reached out to me for a reply to all those who shamed & criticized my call for more “Sensory Friendly set asides”: https://s3.amazonaws.com/apmagpdf/Issue-85_web_6159.pdf

I’m both honored & touched to have been selected by one of The Washington Post’s editors for favorite op-eds for 2018, from a fellow special needs parent who “gets it”: https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2018/12/18/our-favorite-washington-post-op-eds/?fbclid=IwAR1jwsAvWVf5I0FQVFvEW0W0lK25v-7z0ogdK3mpUx09vjygsjKNZg5Mqpc&utm_term=.fda3fc5b0740
Enormous gratitude to The Washington Post Op-ed Editors Anna Walsh & team for publishing my opinion on true access for the Autism community. Excellent points were raised that SF events would also benefit persons with PTSD, and of course the disability community at large. Comments on WAPO are rising both for & against ~ always interesting to see how offended people are about opportunities which in no way eclipse their own rights but expand for others who don’t have them. https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/my-son-has-autism-he-deserves-separate-sensory-friendly-opportunities/2018/11/27/b1268848-a0a4-11e8-8e87-c869fe70a721_story.html?utm_term=.41ff55e397fa
