“Garden as art: Jade … Twelve-year-old Abbi Roman of Antioch has autism, but she has found a connection with plants and her camera. This blooming jade plant started out as a cutting from a plant Abbi’s great-grandmother grew on her porch in San Francisco. Although the woman is gone, her memory lives on in the plant and Abbi’s photos.”:

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
