                         Where the Mysteries of Autism are Revealed One Story at a Time

Juniper Hill Farms

Juniper Hill Farms is a model of independent living for adults on the autism spectrum.

It is not a group home, nor a 'facility'. Juniper Hill Farms is just a farm - a bit outside the city limits - where guys are renting their home, doing their chores - or not, and shopping, interacting and living - independently. A wonder solution to the question of what happens when the autistic child grows up? The small farm in southeastern Pennsylvania is complete with lots of animals.... and fields of sunflowers in the summer.Check out this website - and read their blogs - they're great!!

Danny Did Foundation

The book, "Fly Danny, Fly" is a sweet children's book by Chip Gilbertson and Gina Restivo. This is the story about a little boy with a very vivid imagination that starts to doubt himself because other children do not envision what he does. It's about being different and allowing yourself to be different instead of trying to act "normal". Instead, the message is allow yourself to keep your own unique qualities of who you really are if you wish to be truly happy. 

Founded in 2010 by Mike and Mariann Stanton after the Sudden Unexplained Death in Epilepsy (SUDEP) of their four-year-old son Danny, the Foundation is dedicated to preventing deaths caused by seizures. The Danny Did Foundation’s name derives from the last sentence of Danny’s obituary: Please Go And Enjoy Your Life. Danny Did."
