Autism Awareness: Pagan Perspectives

The fifth annual World Autism Awareness Day was on April 2, 2012 and was a prelude to April being Autism Awareness Month. I haven’t written much recently that specifically relates to both Autism and Paganism together so I thought this month would be an appropriate time to try to rectify that. Life here at home is busy with kids, a dog, a husband (not necessarily in that order! ;)) a household to run, a small business to do accounting/paperwork for and websites to maintain, so I don’t always get the time I want to spend on blogging. Or if I take the time (which I tend to to do anyway, hehe) something else gets neglected then needs to be “caught up on” (sigh) and as a result I often suffer from brain fog, mental exhaustion — whatever — and it’s just too difficult and time-consuming to try to put my own thoughts into coherently written sentences.

So, I thought I’d have a look around via Google to see what other people have written about Autism/Aspergers and Paganism and put links to their articles here. I’ll try to add more throughout the month as perhaps people write more stuff — assuming I can find such articles — so check back here again to see if the list has grown. Oh, and don’t forget to read the comments at the bottom of each article as they can be just as interesting as the main stories.
