Alaska will no longer allow workers with disabilities to be paid less than minimum wage
Wonderful news! Can every state follow now, please?
Alaska will no longer allow workers with disabilities to be paid less than minimum wage Yes, that was a thing. And yes, it is completely legal.

A Mom Has Gone Viral After Sharing The Heartbreaking Question Asked By Her Autistic Son
Someone I love shared this post with me and I had to share this touching story. I am fortunate that my son has had the same group of friends since kindergarten. I know that his social life could’ve gone differently. Many of our kids long to have friends but don’t know how to get them and keep them. It’s important we work on these skills throughout their school career.

What to do if you see children with blue trick-or-treat buckets this Halloween
This story hasn’t been without controversy, as parents of kids with Autism have come out saying that they don’t feel they should have to tell people their kid has Autism and that all kids should be treated with kindness and patience. Unfortunately, that isn’t the real world. I think, in order to educate people and build a compassionate world, we need to start by showing them how to work with our kids. The blue bucket tells them to stop and think about how that child may behave and to be patient with them. https://m.chron.com/news/houston-texas/article/Blue-buckets-halloween-autism-awareness-14562009.php
