About one week ago (at the urging of a friend), I decided to submit my Open Letter to All Professionals to The Thinking Person's Guide to Autism. I have followed this site for a while, and have a lot of respect for the people who run it. I had heard from my (RL and Internet) friends that it was a good piece. I thought I might be worth a shot. All they could say was "no thank you".
And I am honored to say they accepted my submission!!! They posted the essay two days ago, and you can't know the thrill I got knowing it was out there. Outside of this little blog and my little cloister of friends and followers. What I wasn't prepared for was the overwhelming response I've had to the letter. Apparently, it struck a chord with parents and teachers alike. I have had tons of lovely emails from people who have really responded to it.
I am deeply honored and thankful to everyone who has passed on words of appreciation and friendship. It means the world to me.
And for those new visitors to the Crack, welcome.
