On your front page, it says: "Autism Wiki is a place where parents of kids with autism and Asperger's can share their stories, and build a database of helpful information."
Does this mean that people with autism are not invited to be part of the sharing and building? I suspect that this is not what you intended, and I know that this question can sometimes become a point of contention within the autism community as a whole. However, the two stories you've highlighted directly above this statement lead me to conclude that autistics themselves are a part of your wiki community here, and that this is not just a place for "parents." I would suggest, with all due respect, that you therefore reframe the language on the front page to encourage and reflect the inclusion of a broader base of people who might participate in building this wiki. (I say this as both a "parent of..." and as an autistic myself.) Many thanks! -- User:220.127.116.11
It would have been ok to "be bold" and revise the text to include autistics. It looks like someone has since done that :). Perpetualstudent 08:56, 26 February 2008 (UTC)
