Cappuccino and Autism

The Tea:

While the meal is still called tea, or teatime, today I am actually having coffee. I recently dusted off my espresso machine and have been refining my brewing skills so I’m drinking a butter rum cappuccino and eating a slice of Dave’s Killer Bread with orange marmalade. While my cappuccino tastes quite good, I don’t have the artistic skills to make the pretty art in the foam.
The Reading:
I am sharing today’s article because it strikes close to home for me. My 10 year old son has an autism spectrum disorder and this article talks about something I deal with a lot; the challenges of dealing not with the person with autism, but with the perception of autism held by others. A lot is being done to educate people about this issue, but not all of the information is accurate.
