I RESIGN MY ROLES AT AUTISM SPEAKS

It’s been two years since I wrote this essay, as I sat on a plane overwhelmed by the latest outrageous commentary from Autism Speaks.  Since then the Wrights have resigned/retired, and Liz Feld is stepping down as president.  But will the organization change in a meaningful way?  Only time will tell.

Meanwhile we are on to other challenges, like building neurodiversity on campus and developing high school to work transition programs.

I also invite you to read these thoughts on neurodiversity, now and two years ago
