    SHAME ON THE SHAMERS

    Nobody likes a bully. Nobody.

    And that includes the bully himself.

    It's the reason bullies bully in the first place.

    Bullies hate themselves and project that hate on others, usually they ones they perceive as inferior to themselves.

    Of course, bullying comes in many forms: physical, emotional, mental, positional.

    Kids bully kids, adults bully kids and adults bully adults.

    Bullying is never okay,  but there's something exceptionally unseemly about the recent potshots at Joe Biden's well documented lifelong struggle with stuttering.

  • AUTISM AND THE TIME MACHINE


    If memory serves, and more often than not these days it doesn't, I was seeing around six students a day.

    So this bright eyed neophyte with what felt like a 3-ton therapy bag, was servicing approximately thirty 0-3 year-olds a week.  Yikes!

    To be honest, I can't recall any of their names.

    Except for one. 

    Luke.

    Luke was my first autistic client.
