Today is World Autism Awareness Day - a cause near & dear to my heart. My oldest son, Richie, has Asperger's - or ASD as it's now called. My favorite way I've seen Autism described is that it's not a processing error - it's a different operating system.
There is a great blog hop going on in honor of WAAD - here's a link to the first page. Lots of great freebies & information!
