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

BOOKS


Jodi Picoult “Picoult’s next novel will be about a boy with Asperger’s syndrome who becomes obsessed with crime scenes – so obsessed that he ends up a murder suspect. (You can’t deny the brilliance of this idea.) She has said that, for her, her books represent a kind of magical thinking: she puts herself through the emotional wringer while she writes them in the hope of conferring a degree of immunity on her family.”:
