We are laughing out loud at this one. See, this is how it works around here. We have absolutely no political or medical agenda when it comes to Autism. We are completely agnostic when it comes to what causes Autism. There is no cure for Autism. When you are wired differently, it is something you learn to manage and cope with your entire life. If and when there is a cure, you can bet we are getting in line. Until then, we will let the big corporations and institutions battle it out. We donate a good deal to research and just like everyone else, we too want to get to the bottom of this mystery.
We're still asking ourselves that question. It was not easy getting to this point and we don't recommend trying this at home :)
You bet we do. We are all about carving an entirely new path through the maze of Autism...and sharing about it along the way. As the founders of multiple technology companies, we tend to have a unique perspective on Autism, technology and Social Entrepreneurship. Send us an email with dates, location and a brief description of the event.
We happen to be Mac guys who know a thing or two about code, design and film. We shoot in 1080i and edit (eventually) down to Flash Video. It takes a lot of different hardware and software to make a company like AutismSpot function.
We are dads and technologists. Having worked for big companies and doing a fine job of rising to the top of our respective fields, we felt there was more to life. As Social Entrepreneurs, we feel it is our duty to serve the global community. We have each lived with learning differences our entire lives and so we understand being a little different isn't easy. Combine that with the fact that some of us have kids with Autism and, well, the rest is proverbial history. If you think AutismSpot is cool, then just wait to see what else we have in store.
Funny that you ask. Red represents passion, love and warfare. There is no better color to describe our feelings about Autism. We love our children dearly. We want them to excel and live full and rewarding lives. Autism has worked its way into their lives and we are doing everything we can to fight this battle. We are passionate about changing how the global Autism Community learns and communicates. Now for the "spot" question. It's pretty simple. Everyone needs a spot and we felt it was time for the Autism Community to claim theirs.
This is an important question. Autism is not just an American issue. Autism impacts every region of the world. In fact, there are countries with a much greater incident rate than the US. We are based in the United States (Texas to be exact), but our contacts have opened doors around the world so we can bring you best practices without concern for borders.
