The training stresses the idea of connecting the children with the outer environment rather than just the class, and letting them speak out, to be part of society, and not just receive lectures from Fellows.”:

“House Guest: Sign of a civilised society … Last week’s best moment was the opening of a home in Hampton Hill for young adults with learning difficulties, specifically autism.

A civilised society recognises the needs, and the value, of individuals with mental as well as physical disabilities. They were often treated with great cruelty – the Nazis tried to exterminate them. Here they were usually left to their parents or in institutions.”:

GLIMPSE – the talents of the autism community

They are painters, sculptors and photographers; poets and storytellers; musicians and creators of amazing video games. They are kids, teens and adults. Last year, a new online publication arose to celebrate the talents of autistic individuals and other developmental disabilities: GLIMPSE, offered by ICDL (The Interdisciplinary Council of Developmental and Learning Disorders). In late 2008, Volume 2 of GLIMPSE was released, and was expanded into a print book and notecards. The works are serious, humourous, deeply personal and illuminating. See it for yourself, share it with others, submit your own/your child’s work for inclusion in Volume 3, to release later this year. Find information and ordering details at www.icdl.com
