Out of the Gate

I've only spoke at three schools but my 2013 National Autism Awareness Tour has started strongly out of the gates. Yesterday I was in Fort Wayne and spoke to over 900 students and the response was wonderful. And then again, today, I spoke at a school in the Chicago area the response was just the same.

I know I have a month of speaking, but after each of these presentations I realize the need for this more and more. I wish you could see one of these presentations and the amazing questions. I wish you could see the smiles, the laughter, and sometimes the tears from students when they hear my stories.

Already I'm fearing the end of this tour. I know, I know, it only begun yesterday, but reaching teachers and students has the potential to bring about more change than one can comprehend and it is such a blessing to be able to do this.

Well, that's all I've got time to write today; I've got to head to my open to the public presentation now at Concordia University Chicago and then tomorrow it's onward to Milwaukee after a presentation to a social work class at the same university.

  1. In the immortal words of Harry Caray, Holy Cow! What a great response Aaron! Looks like you're in for a very busy month. Hope you get a chance to tell us a bit about what's going on during some of your presentations. Any interesting or new responses or questions yet?
