Hey K Street Magazine! Thank you for the great [piece and Ambassadors shout-out, don’t think I’ve ever been called an angel before (a few other things!) but I’ll take it with gratitude from you! http://kstreetmagazine.com/meet-this-angel-of-autismawareness-who-calls-the-dc-area-home/
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
