The Value of Facebook For Autism Awareness

"Try to imagine a world where we don't talk about disabilities, but only abilities (pause for a moment). Now imagine our world now (again pause for a moment). Didn't that first world make you feel a lot better?"---Jerry Komar, Editor Autism News and Views

The Value of Facebook for Autism Awareness

Let me begin by explaining the purpose of this piece is not to promote Facebook. The purpose of this piece is promote autism awareness. Now that I have that out of the way, I do want to point out the value of Facebook in promoting autism awareness. In short, Facebook is a wonderful resource for current information on autism, for current news on autism as well as the current research. The value of Facebook for autism awareness is immeasurable. The amount of information is limitless. And that's a beautiful thing.

In keeping with the theme of this article, I'm going to share with you just a sampling of the gold mine of unique and varied information, news and resources on autism  I've found on Facebook in the last several weeks. I'm confident you will be as impressed as I was.
