We will be talking to Jason Ross about his autistic carnival, poetry will be read and this will be a very enthralling show.
Simply Drive Mom Crazy. I am not going to tell people ways on which to drive their mom crazy. It simply a metaphor.
My name is Jason Ross who is a 34 year old Autistic Adult and Autistic disability rights activist. I support the Autistic Self-Advocacy Network, and what used to be Autism Network International and now is Association for Autistic Community, and Ollibean.
I have Asperger Syndrome. I have always believed in Neurodiversity. A lot of people think of me as the peacemaker in the community because I am always trying my best to bring the whole community together.
I am the type of person who always wants to learn and do new things. I gear up for it. Whenever I see something new, I try to experience it unless say its something that won’t be good for me.
This site will hopefully give you a glimpse into my world. A world which is also part of the Autistic World.

Dr. Julian and Emily will go into more depth about "CD autism" and other controversial practices marketed to families through the continual misrepresentation and exploitation of autism.
