When I see young kids with Autism or Asperger’s advocating for themselves, I get a sudden rush of excitement, followed quickly by an intense feeling of pride.
Translation from above, per the de-coder in Haley’s book: In my humble opinion, you are in for a treat, and if I recall correctly, many of you have kids the same age as Haley, so don’t say you’ll be right back, stay, read the interview and laugh out loud with us!
Now it is time to enter.
But before I start, if you are one of those people who think “I don’t need that book yet, so I won’t enter”, enter anyway – you can always donate the book to a local support group or library – many people can't access these resources, so getting them into the hands of people who will 'check them out' to many is a fantastic thing! No teenage girl with autism should have to start school without a little guidance.
Here is how you can win:
1. You will need to follow this blog publicly through Google located on the top of the right column or via RSS/email (please indicate in your comment which one you use) and
2. Post a comment for Tracy -- tell us which book you want and why -- she will be reading and responding, so feel free to ask other questions too!
3. Leave your email address so I can contact you.
OK, once you have joined and commented, you are officially entered.
The contest will run from Tuesday 7/06/10 to Monday 7/12/10 and will end at 7pm PST. The winner will be selected by random drawing, and emailed (don't forget to leave your email address!!). If you do not respond, a new winner will be drawn.
Please take the time to tweet and share this on Facebook to help spread the word, awareness and help to families who need it.
