In the first of the new year, our blog was relaunched, with its new name -"Don't Cut Corners...Unless It's Cake" (formerly The Click/Clique Blog). Each month you can look forward to receiving news and information along with a
sweet slice of wisdom that speaks to autistic adults and to
those who support them.
With summer 2020 underway, and while we're out and about taking in the sun rays and adjusting to social and
physical distancing, we hope you'll enjoy reading the recent
blogs. Just released for August, the blog reveals that in this coronavirus era, kindness goes a long way in the autism
community. Get the scoop by clicking atop the cake. Also,
we want to know what you think of the blog content, so in
addition to you clicking on the heart, please, and kindly share a
comment on the content of the blogs.
