As it is April 2nd in many parts of the world now, I thought I'd share this with you all to help get you started with some real info before people start bombarding you with "diagnosis rates" and such.
Allow me to share with you a few things that you might not know about autistics for Autism Awareness Day

Found more talk about Autcraft on a hacker/griefer forum.
When I show this to people, the usual response is to "ignore it" but you know what? I can't.

I actively seek this stuff out because experience has shown that on the occasions where this happens, there's almost always 2 or 3 whitelist applications that come in from trolls. So being on top of when these things are talked about and making notes of the day/time and correlating them to when whitelist apps come in... it actually helps us to prevent these people from ever getting onto the server.

And sure enough, there are 2 whitelist applications that came in shortly after that discussion on the forum took place. A little digging and yup, they're trolls.

Yup, following the haters of the Internet around has become a part of my job.
Sometimes you have to get your hands dirty to get the job done.

Congrats on 400.

I've said it before and I'll say it again... I've been here from the beginning, you got me into this and now I am running a server with over 5000 children that have autism. Parents were feeling powerless to do anything as their autistic children were being bullied everywhere they tried to play. I loved Minecraft, my son loves Minecraft... we both have autism and love Minecraft thanks in large part to your videos. So when those parents started posting their frustrations, I had the know how to be able to help.

So this isn't just a congrats to you... this is a thank you.

Thank you +EthosLab for entertaining my child & I and for teaching me along the way, giving me the opportunity to help out more people than I ever thought I could.

Did you watch Grey's Anatomy last thursday. There was a scientist saying she wanted to "cure" autism. Argh!

We sat down with several high-functioning autistic people and asked them what our readers should know about their condition. Here's what they said ...

I asked the Minecraft community to speak up and help those of us in the autism community last year... and they did!

But we still need to do more so I'm asking once again.

If you play Minecraft or know anyone that does, please share and ask for support on this upcoming Autism Awareness Day.
Second annual plea to the Minecraft community, please help us take a stand against bullying on April 2nd.

Story
Tagline
aka AutismFather - Upgrading Autism Awareness to Autism Understanding and Acceptance
Introduction
First and foremost, I am a father. 

Beyond that, I'm also a web developer, a former radio broadcaster and most notably, I'm an autism advocate.

My son was diagnosed in 2007 on the autism spectrum and I have since dedicated a portion of my life (not all because the majority is for my family) towards raising autism awareness.

I don't want to just raise awareness though, I push for Autism Understanding and Acceptance around the world.

Children, teenagers and adults with autism around the world need to be accepted for who they are, helped as much as possible and relieved of the barriers that prevent an independent and happy life.

Research, treatments and hard work will only get us part of the way... the rest is up to us to understand and to accept.
