My New Earth work is actually on twiiter.com/BookClubClass It's a text messaging book club. In case you came here from the Oprah website and were wondering where it all is. I'll bring my New Earth Work over here because, I guess this is where it's meant to be. Welcome to Jippyjabber! PS I am auntjippy on the Oprah message boards.

I want to let you know that the audience of 90 physicians (mostly family
practitioners and pediatricians) were absolutely riveted to the sceen when I
showed those brief clips of your son! I am absolutely sure that those are
images that they will remember forever. And I am also sure, by the looks on
their faces as well as the questions asked of me afterwards, that my purpose was
served - in fact, I saw lots of nodding in the audience when I told them that I
do not think these children should be assessed and responded to in the same way
as other,non-autistic children, when they aggress, including self aggression.
I have to say that my experience dealing with families of children with autism
is that these are - you are - the most generous of parents, really trying to
help educate others. That is a wonderful effort on your part.
I am really humbled and honored to be even a small part of that.
thanks again, so very much.
