Links to Articles Concerning Autism and the CT tragedy

Kathleen and I believe that offering multiple perspectives is vital to the health of our community. Open exchange and dialogue are key to creating meaningful change in the larger society.

Speculation, as always, is rampant in the CT tragedy. The need to react, even if knee-jerk, is  understandable.

Below are the pieces we have found covering the intersection between autism and the tragic school shooting on Friday (in no particular order).

Thanks so much for the links
It always makes me soooo mad when I read someone make a connection between autism and an act of violence
Even though its been proven repeated times that there is no connection

Thank you for including me in your list of blogs that is trying to understand what happened in the tiny town so far from where I live now. The lives lost really need to be where our focus is, not on the young man who could find no other way to be heard. PEACE from Laughter, Could be the Missing Piece.

Thanks for the links, I wrote about this too. There is no connection between mental illness, autism/asperger and violence.
