I promise not to abuse the link feature on the new site. The only time I’ll use it is when I find something really awesome online that is absolutely perfect on its own. I read this article at the Huffington Post yesterday and it spoke to me (Hint: Click this post title to be taken to the article).
Here’s a small exceprt:
Children learn to connect with the people in their lives who have developmental disabilities by watching their parents. When parents model the imaginative generosity needed for forming substantive relationships with their relatives with autism, their own children learn how to be imaginatively generous too. And there’s a bonus — so-called “normal” children who learn to connect with a cousin who has autism wind up mastering essential ethical lessons that extend beyond the sphere of awareness as it relates to persons with disability.
