Part of what I would like to happen with this blog is to give voice to relevant issues that could help to connect people who work with persons with disabilities to each other.  I have searched the web to find similar blogs to connect with but I haven’t found any.   Do you know of other blogs that may be willing to connect with this one?

There is one blog written by a mother of an autistic child that is really good but I’m not sure that she would have the time to interact with folks.  The information is pretty specific to the autistic population but it is well-written and factual.

 Part of my hope is to be able to put a human face and expose the heart of this often misunderstood population.  Perhaps even dispelling the really bad information that can be found in written material everywhere.  I am so happy that I didn’t read Of Mice and Men until after I had come to know and love this population of people. 

I seem to have no problem finding misinformation and distorted views like the blog written by a movie critic who wrote about sitting behind a group of mentally challenged people in a movie theatre.  His thesis was that the horror movie was taking place in the theatre, not on the screen. 

 Guess your help is needed in this adventure.  I would love to have other contributors and other comments.  What would you like to see happen with this blog?
