A Huge Shout Out to the US Autism and Asperger Association for an AMAZING Conference This Year!

THANK YOU.  It just keeps getting better and better and because the conference was held in Utah this year, the ripple of impact really hit home!  Thank you Dr. Lawrence Kaplan, Gail Kaplan, Theresa Wrangham, et al. for making this conference everything that it was – enlightening, empathetic, and empowering. Thank you Rev. Dolores Wiens, and Dr. Paul Wiens (aka, Granny and Granddad) for painting the town red with our children Madeline and Caleb, so that we could attend together and spend time with fantastic folks like, Dr. Gil Tippy,  aka, DIR/Floortime Guru; Brooklynne Sanders; costumer and young brilliant self advocate;  Jacquelynn Bradley, super awesome Easter Seals Play Project advocate, Julie Matthews, ASD Nutritionist and foodie extraordinaire, and Dr. Judy Zimmerman, the incredible person responsible for figuring out the autism prevalence in Utah — “Auntie Judy” to the kids.  We are so grateful! Here is a sampling of the photographs made during the conference.

We just love these people!
