What Next?

My husband and I often talk about what to do with what we have learned about autism.

I hope the metaphor doesn't offend, but I tend to call it "making lemonade."

We have no desire to profit from autism by exploiting our son or our story. We have no desire for anyone else to exploit our family. We do have a desire to change the world.

My husband is a writer, director, and producer. I am an educator. We ask ourselves should we write a book, design a web site, make a movie, start a school, begin a revolution? Are these crazy impossible dreams?

Maybe we should just keep putting one foot in front of the other. Or maybe there is an incredibly satisfying lemonade stand in our future that can make a difference in the autism community.

Any thoughts?
