    My best friend from 7th grade is autistic. He is an amazing musician and artist, former counselor and had a fascinating career as a deprogrammer. Pretty inspiring considering the obstacles he has faced, he is a hero.

    He has recently begun reaching out to other with support and encouragement, and I am sharing this link to his latest podcast for those who may be interested.

    Well that sounds like a scam, but I assure you my friend mentioned above is not part of that organization... he's totally independent.

    But seriously 'Autism Speaks' sounds screwed up.
