Participants for 2011!

Hi all!!  It's August when I'm posting this.  Kathryn and I are excitedly getting ready for our second ASDay!

We want to get things started earlier than last year, and we wanted a place where we could put everything together in one location.  So we made here.  Please let us know if there is anything we need to change here to make it more accessible to everyone.

Also, if you're planning to participate this year, let us know!!  Either message me on Twitter (@CorinaBecker), on our Facebook event page, or leave a comment here!

When people's blog posts start going up, we'll be turning this into a large list like we did for last year.  So let us know if and when you have a blog post, or whether you'll be on Facebook or Twitter, or even somewhere else online!


edit: we also have a Twitter account now, and an email address.  Email us at AutisticsSpeakingDay [at]

  1. I do not have autism myself, but I support Autism and am working toward getting my Autism teaching endorsement. I will be posting a blog post.

  2. Count me and my blog in!

  3. I have started the participant list now. Feel free to check it out.

  4. Can you put my blog on your list? I have written a post for Autistics Speaking Day, but haven't yet put it up on my blog (it's already November 1st here) as i'm waiting on someone to give permission to quote her in it. But it should soon be up.
    My blog is at

  5. This upcoming year, when you make this list, can you direct-link to the posts instead of just the blogs? It would be awesome to be able to read the specific posts easily. (Also please note this isn't complaining or grouching or anything, it's just a thought for possible improvement. :)) Thanks for doing such great work! As the webmaster behind the Autism Positivity Flash Blog this past April (sleep? that's for wusses!), I completely understand just how much work this is, and want to convey that I appreciate every minute and hour spent organizing and doing this. You are awesome :)

    1. That is a very good suggestion. I'm sure we can do that. Thanks!

      (lol, sleep. benefit of ASDay on Nov 1st is Halloween candy :D)

    2. Oh! I think I know why we haven't been doing that with the participants list, because it's more difficult to tag triggers and such with it. But we'll see what we can do, cause that's still good.
