We all watched with sadness and despair as the Connecticut shootings unfolded.  We were more disturbed, however, to find the term “Asperger’s” floated around as a a possible reason for the shooter’s violence.  As we already know, kids with Asperger’s are more likely to be victims of violence than the perpetrators of violence themselves.  The Autism Self Advocacy Network put out a statement on Friday that helps educate others on autism.  Please give it a read and share it.

We join with all other Americans in putting  forth an effort to make sure our country unites around this unspeakable tragedy.  Consider Ann Curry’s call to action with your family as a way to deal with sadness and fear related to Newtown.
