No, not exactly an autism piece, but this does give a hard look at the reality of being black and in special education here in the United States. This has to change, not just on the end of the institutions, but also on the end of the African-American community and its understanding/acceptance of neurodiversity. For both ends, education is critical.
This article is not exactly autism-related, but it speaks to the consequences of the decline of play at the preschool level and how this is affecting sensory processing in young children. Definitely worth a read.
Note: I will be getting back to The Bridge series shortly. My “day job” has a slew of reports due this week, so my brain is a little fried. If I don’t get it out this week, I definitely will first thing next week!
This video is AMAZING. I literally got teary-eyed.
