Seeing your picture posted here has solved a mystery that's been puzzling me for a few years now - I do believe you were my high school history teacher! (Catholic high school, northern IL, early eighties? I was the really, really crappy history student halfway back, left side of the room, who couldn't make heads or tails out of that damn massive red book!)

Anyway, thanks for all you do to speak out on behalf of all our kids!


Love you and your work Anne!! Proud to be able to call you a friend and comrade!! In the immortal words of another awesome autism warrior mama, Leslie Weed, Soldier on......

Great job Anne


I really admire your articles especially this last one taking on the DSM's new definitions which seem confusing, suspicious and loaded with hidden agendas kind of like a three-card monte game in Times Square. Please keep up the good work!

Yes, the article was a masterpiece and deserves the widest circulation.
