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

“A Good Read: Battle of the books highlights great reads … Anything But Typical by Nora Raleigh Baskin is about a 12-year-old autistic boy named Jason. Although Jason’s autism may seem to make him an atypical protagonist, his feelings of isolation, dread for PE and wish for a girlfriend are pretty universal. Jason finds solace in writing, posting his stories on an online writing forum.”:
