I am a volunteer for Autism Speaks Tennessee, and I made this 2 min piece featuring my little boy. I know some people in the autism community may have seen it -- but it's kind of like preaching to the choir. I would love for others across the country to hear this message, to hear that people with autism are to be treasured and respected as much as anybody else. Autism affects 1 in 88 kids, teens and adults in the United States; my son among them. And he is wonderful.
