found the coolest ning

One of my favorite websites, Autism Speaks, has a ning:

I also found that out that it's very active, as is the blog on this site.

For anyone who hasn't ever been to this website, if you are interested in autism, there is a ton of great information here. And, the organization has a really heartwarming story of its beginning and founders. I won't bore anyone with it here, but if you are interested, let me know and I'll make another post.

This ning is a great way to stay current with some of the latest research and issues surrounding autism. Autism is a unique disorder in that it has educational, medical, psychological and social ramifications. So, it's great to have a central location where all of these issues can be discussed and new information can be shared and disseminated in an organized, streamlined way.

I don't think I would have found this if it hadn't been for this assignment, so thanks, Dr. Burgos! Kathy


  1. I love it when you find something cool like that, Kathy. Super-cool because it means something to you and because it is another way for you to connect to your interests.

  2. Kathy,
    Sometimes networking really works well, doesn't it!

  3. It is so fun to find other people (that we wouldn't normally talk to) that have the same interests as us! Good luck in your new networking group!
