This is not our first joint venture, though. We've started forums, facebook groups, and we write Respect for Infinite Diversity and EDHF with Thelma and Louise. In addition, Kathleen started Kicking Kittens last year as a place to spotlight positive stories about our children (and about yourselves, if you're on the spectrum!).
We believe strongly in building a supportive, protective community for those impacted by autism and disabilities.
We do not make any money from this site and we are committed to not doing so; we are happy to link to sites and with very rare exceptions will not exert our own personal biases in our decisions of who to list and who not to. So far, this has translated into our never refusing to list a person's site when we've been asked. Many blogs we've come across and added as we've seen that it is autism or disability related. Most of these blogs listed were added in this latter way.
We think a diversity of voices is necessary for a healthy strong community, that pleasant and cordial disagreements are possible, and that where the focus is on community building and support, other less important debates like vaccines and light woo can take a back seat.
