Who do you think are the people and groups who made the biggest impact for people with autism and their families in 2006? I'm compiling a list for an upcoming article on Autism Bulletin. You can send me your nominations via e-mail at michaelsgoldberg AT yahoo DOT com. Or you can simply post a comment below this article by hitting the "comment" button.
You could name individuals (maybe radio talk show host Don Imus, who kept discussing the Combat Autism Bill on the air? some parent who posted important or moving videos on YouTube? An awesome teacher? A researcher? Author? Advocate? Parent?) You could name a group, a school, a medical or research facility. Anyone you feel made a difference for the autism community. All nominations considered, but please include information about the person or organization so I can look them up or contact them to find out more.
Let me know your nominations by December 10. Thank you.
