Dana Commandatore - for an excellent article for American Women Media about Autism and Acceptance.
Let's change the conversation
Todd Drezner - for Loving Lampposts, a movie that explores what it is like to be the parent of a child with autism and what it is like to live and grow up with autism. This great documentary is available on DVD and Netflix
Natalie Davis, Miss Minnesota - for using her platform to talk about autism
Joslyn Gray, a.k.a. Stark Raving Mad Mommy, writer. For having the guts and the humor to write about what its like for moms in general and special needs moms in particular. Her lay-it-bare humorous writing made me want to join the conversation. Her encouragement helped me follow through.
Thanks to ALL the people who promote awareness and acceptance for our family members with special needs.
