Colophon

What’s a colophon and why should you care?

A colophon is a term for page (usually in a book) providing information about the text and the writer. And it’s sounds a lot more cool than a page called “About this site”.

Why a Blog about Autism?

I’m writing this site primarily as a personal outlet for my thoughts and ideas. Hopefully it will lead to dialogue with others and provide some assistance to others that live ‘along the spectrum’. I get a lot of positive support from sharing experiences with other parents of children on the spectrum. I’m hoping this will lead to similar moments for both the author and the readers.

The Author

I’m the father of one typical son and two sons on the spectrum. Formally diagnosed with Asperger’s and PDD-NOS, they often appear so different that it’s hard to believe the disorders are so related. Along with my wife, I’ve been living with the symptoms since about 1998 and with the first diagnosis since 2002. We are currently running a support group for parents and families and remain committed to learning all we can about autism.

The Title

One of the first images I considered as a graphic for the site was a river with a path along side it. The river represented the journey my children are on and the path represented by my path, along the spectrum. The pictures been replaced, but I liked what the image represented.

The Cover Graphics

A jigsaw puzzle is often used as a metaphor for Autism, as there are so many missing pieces to our understanding. The puzzle pieces in this image are from one of my favorite pictures, of two of my favorite subjects.

Credits

It’s amazing how many people make the fruits of their efforts available on the internet for others to benefit. The software behind this site comes from WordPress. The WordPress Theme (page design and layout) that I used as a basis for the site comes from Chetan Kunte. I was really stuck until I found his PlainVanilla theme to use as a starting point. Tips on creating the puzzle pieces came from Digital Art Resources.
Thanks to all!
