  1. Love your R word article! The best I’ve ever read on the subject. My 13 yr old son, Jax, has hemiplegic cerebral palsy, seizures and a touch of autism. I get the same stabbing pains in my neck and have the same impulse to educate the person who says it. You are absolutely right that those people are limited in their vocabulary and can’t come up with any other adjective. There are people in their 30s-50’s at my workplace who use that word. Obviously, you are a brilliant young man! Congrats on getting on the huffingtonpost with this article and best wishes on your continuing success!

  2. Also writing to thank you for your R-word article. Honest and moving. My younger brother, Willie, has autism. I remember how hard it was to hear him talk about going back to ‘Whippany Park High School’ just like his older sister. (He had to leave because of behavioral difficulties; he’s now the inspiration for ‘disability as opportunity’ at: http://www.awishcomeclear.com.)
    I appreciate your sharing; thanks again.

  3. I am extremely impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it is rare to see a nice blog like this one these days..
