Off topic, but for those interested in autism, here is a message I just received (sent to the Awares mailing list) from my brother Adam.

The wonderful Liane Holliday Willey is the latest presenter in the monthly series of one-day online autism conferences in the Awares conference centre. I will be putting Liane’s excellent paper on the conference site over the next day or so and Liane will be online all day on Monday, May 20, 2013

Please register right now at www.awares.org/conferences

Dr Liane Holliday Willey, Ed.D. (www.aspie.com) is an inspirational speaker who helps her audience truly understand the importance of accepting people with differences. All her life, Liane knew she was different, but only after one of her family members was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome did Liane realize the reason behind her own differences; she too was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome.  Liane spends much of her time working with horses at the equestrian facility she owns. Dr Willey has authored several internationally best-selling books all published by Jessica Kingsley Publishers, including Pretending to be Normal: Living with Asperger Syndrome (foreword by Tony Attwood), Asperger Syndrome in Adolescence: Living with the Ups, the Downs, and Things in Between, and Asperger Syndrome in the Family: Redefining Normal and Safety Skills for Asperger Women: How to Save a Perfectly Good Female Life. Liane has contributed to many additional books and journals, and is currently the senior editor for Autism Spectrum Quarterly. In addition to her numerous interviews on national and international television and radio, Liane’s life story was an inspiration for the film Normal Folk, currently in pre-production, and the feature film, Adam, as well as the focus of the video Asperger Syndrome: Crossing the Bridge with Dr Tony Attwood. Liane believes the Asperger’s syndrome community is a wonderfully rich world that is populated by some of the most interesting and incredible individuals on the planet and she is exceptionally proud to be a part of it.
