Welcome back to Poetic Travels On The Autism Highway, I'm Erik Estabrook and todays interview will be with Lei Wiley Mydske. Lei will be talking to us about the lending library she's starting up in her local community.
-Lei Wiley-Mydske is an Autistic activist, wife and home schooling mom. After being misdiagnosed for many years, Lei was diagnosed as Autistic when she was in her thirties.
Lei is the co-founder of a special education advisory committee in her school district, where she focuses on finding ways to promote authentic inclusion, making schools and events more accessible for students of all abilities, and implementing disability history into the curriculum. Lei is also the director and founder of the Ed Wiley Autism Acceptance Lending Library, which serves the communities of Stanwood & Camano Island, WA by lending books and materials that promote the ideas of autism acceptance, social justice, disability rights and neurodiversity. She is an administrator on the popular Facebook page, Parenting Autistic Children With Love & Acceptance.
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.
Kelly and I will be interviewing DJ Svoboda, creator of imagifriends.
“I have created The Imagifriends based on difficult situations I have faced growing up with Autism. They are brightly colored characters who help and support one another. They live in a wonderful place called Imagiville where everyone is accepted " just the way they are" and no one is ever picked on or mistreated. I want to use my art to help encourage others with Autism and to let them know that they too can help make the world a better place.” “Coming up with the names of each Imagifriends is a little bit challenging. To come up with a name I take a couple of words and use those letters to come up with a name…For example; I take the words Paper and Happy, I think for a minute and then in my mind I say-pahappery,so it can be a little challenging sometimes but it is worth it.”
“For my art I use Micron pens size 8 and 5 and for the coloring I use Crayola super tip markers. One big challenge is to add everyone’s favorite colors. I enjoy being an artist and I really love helping those with Autism and disabilities.” D.J. has also just had his first book published. It is about acceptance for those with Autism. You can learn more about D.J. and his mission at WWW.MYIMAGIVILLE.COM.
