Now that's what I call advocacy

You may remember that several months ago I posted a link to an article about Teddy Willis, an eleven-year-old with Aspergers who stood up for his right to discuss his Aspergers with his classmates during Autism Awareness Month.

Teddy and his mom Irene are at it again.

This time, they are starting a day camp designed for children with Aspergers and children without Aspergers to work, play, and deepen their understanding together.

You can read all about it here.
