Resources: Share the Wealth

The Thinking Person's Guide to Autism has been humming along for over a year now, and we've shared more than 200 great interviews, stories and how-to's here. We've watched the TPGA Facebook page grow with active, vibrant discussions, and we love seeing many different perspectives pop-up in those comments. It's encouraging, knowing these pages have provided a positive, supportive and safe environment for discussion and questions. We are seeing a community come to life here, and it's exciting.

Editing is under way on the book, The Thinking Person's Guide to Autism, with a plan to publish later this fall. In an effort to get the best resources into the print version, we are putting out one last call to our readers and contributors: Share the wealth of knowledge you have collected. If you have an online resource, book, service, government agency or other great person, place, or thing that we haven't listed here, please send an email to thinkingautism at with "New Resource" in the subject line. You send them in, and we'll update the website and keep adding them to the Resources section until we go to print.

And we have one more request: Tell us what else you'd like to see here on the site. Is there a subject you want more information on? Is there a topic we haven't covered or things that are on the horizon for you that you'd like to learn more about? We want the posts here to have the right information for our community, so please put your suggestions in the comments section below, or send us an email to thinkingautism at with "Suggested Topic" in the subject line.

With thanks -The Editors
