Welcome to the April edition of "What I Loved on OTHER People's Blogs," my regular monthly round-up of what has caught my eye (and brain, and heart) on the internet.
As you certainly know, April was Autism Awareness / Acceptance month, and so there have been so many, many wonderful posts about autism to splash across the cybersphere this past month, I don't even know where to begin.
If I listed and linked up all the amazing things I've read, this post would be a mile long. So I will instead be offering a small sampling of all the fabulous that is out there; idiosyncratic and very incomplete, as always.
And then, at the end? Something completely unrelated to autism and hilariously funny, from one of my LTYM cohorts. Spit-take funny. Seriously, do not read with a mouthful of beverage or you will be wiping it off the screen.
And, as usual, a couple of my favorite photos from my friend and favorite intstagram photographer, Neil Kramer, who also blogs at Citizen of the Month.
So without further ado, a dozen or so special posts by autists and parents of folks on the spectrum from April, 2012, curated here for you...
