Friday's Autism Panel: Shattering Myths, Opening Eyes, and Finding Your Tribe

Why should you come to the autism panel? Because the women who are speaking about autism represent a range of autism experiences and perspectives. They are articulate, experienced, compassionate advocates. Because you'll learn so much, that you will have an epiphany about what autism means whether you want to or not. (I'm a bit gobsmacked, as my friend and 2008 panel moderator Susan would say -- and I'm one of the speakers.) Trust me, you'll be disappointed if you miss this panel, especially if autism touches your life in any way. See you Friday. ...more

Screw Work Life Balance: We Need Work Life Policy! Here's All You Need to Know to Join the Movement at BlogHer

10 Things You Can Do or Bring to Make Your BlogHer '10 Greener

If you’re nothing like me, you’re already packing for BlogHer10, or at least making a list of things to remember to bring. (I always toss everything into my suitcase the night before and pray.) I’m here to remind you to bring a few items that can make your trip a little greener. Yes, it’s true that BlogHer has done a lot of work to ensure the conference is as eco-friendly as possible. (Read all about BlogHer10′s Green Initiatives.) But providing for the needs of 2,000 attendees is a monumental task, and the organizers can’t do it all. That’s where personal responsibility comes in. ...more

Socially Awkward Like Me: The Quirky Parents of Children With Autism

I'm grateful for all the things my son Leo has taught me about myself. He has autism, and as a result I've spent years researching and learning about the traits that add up to his diagnosis. Along the way, I have come to realize that many of my own, quirkier behaviors are not in fact the result of moral failure or insufficient character, as I was socially conditioned into assuming. No, I'm just wired differently....more
I'm so very happy that your son has a caring mom who is self-aware.  :)  I work with kids with ...more

The BlogHer Voices of the Year Gala and Art Auction Curated By Kirtsy: Sneak Peek

Here’s the thing. You may not have a full picture or comprehensive understanding of the awesomeness, because nothing like this has ever happened before. There’s no frame of reference. It’s like trying to explain Jello, or sushi, or six-story Master Blaster uphill waterslides to someone for the first time. You just don’t get it until you experience it. You know? ...more
