Autism Light is an upbeat but real blog that takes readers on a journey that recognizes diverse heroes in and for the autism community. The posts will show gratitude to those people, organizations, corporations, or resources that are helping make a difference for autism with preference to real people (if known). The goal is to shine a light on a diverse group and remember difference makers.

Within the autism world there exists diverse views on issues such as causes, cures, treatments, vaccines, and most recently the DSM-V language change. It is important to keep in mind that differences of opinion need not deter us from ultimately focusing on a common and unified goal of creating the best world we can for those with autism and their support network. It is the mission of this blog to listen to diverse voices, who by virtue of their leadership may have strong opinions on these issues that reasonable minds in the autism community may disagree on. Autism Light blog does not take official positions on these issues, but presents diverse stories so each of us can decide for ourselves on these issues if we feel we need to take a stand. We may never agree on or understand everything related to the diverse world of autism, but we can love completely those with autism and all those diverse rays of light who are seeking to make a difference on their behalf.
