About

the down & dirty

  • seeing and celebrating authenticity in everyone around me — including myself — is the ultimate goal
  • i am surrounded by neurodiversity, through home and friends and career, and i love it…
  • my kids and my students have taught me everything i know about joy (also known as connection, presence, and relationship)
  • institutionalization, segregation, discrimination, and practices based on fear & shame hurt all of us, sometimes the controller more than the controlled
  • labels mean nothing; gifts & needs mean everything

i blog…

  • because magic happens when we step outside the box;
  • because of that awful gap between parent and professional;
  • because telling our stories is therapeutic;
  • because i want my children to be seen; and
  • because things need to change, dramatically.
