“When we move, Providence moves too.” ~ John Varney

Friday, February 4, 2011. Today I am grateful for people who organize themselves and don’t wait for government to step in. Such a one is Penny Gill, who started a cooking school in her own home for adults and adolescents with autism. Penny founded Autism/PDD* Family Alliance to encourage such services by volunteers. [*PDD = Pervasive Developmental Disorder]

ABOUT US: AUTISM/PDD FAMILY ALLIANCE

Autism/PDD Family Alliance began serving the needs of teenagers and adults with Aspergers and other forms of autism through innovative services in 2001 – offering specially designed programs for these individuals and their unique learning styles.

As a registered charity, AFA operates through a dedicated group of volunteers, who pride themselves on the fact that all of the charity’s funds go directly to services, not to overhead or administration.

Thank you, Penny Gill and John Varney, for teaching us to be inclusive and to learn from each other!

P.S. I learned of Penny Gill from an article entitled “Making it Matter: A Recipe for HOPE,” in the Reader’s Digest, February 2011, page 31.
