Today is 1,000 Ausome Things ~ The Autism Positivity 2013 Flashblog Event!!

For those of you who want the history of the Autism Positivity Flash blog in all it’s glory, this post from Outrunning the Storm is essential reading.

This flash blog event asks that we focus on “ausomeness” to counter all the negativity, fear, and very often, misinformation that surrounds autism, our Autistic children and Autistic people.  There is no way I can detail all the Ausome things about autism I’ve learned in the last year, let alone last nine years, since my daughter was first diagnosed.   So instead of using words, I am using images. Please enjoy this scrapbook, all taken in the last two months.

And this… just this… which if I could only send in one image, one snippet, it would be this – Emma soars and yes she and everyone else pictured above are the very definition of the word – AUSOME!
