Ideally, One Cites One's Sources
If you got here via Mary Tsao's BlogHer post about autism (thanks Mary!), please know that I did not coin the Snowflake analogy to describe the unique nature and symptoms set of each autistic child. Someone else wrote it--Denise Minor? Autism Diva? The good folks at Neurodiversity.com? I've not retained the source and have no time to research it as I'm holding down the fort solo, and Leelo is most likely about to slug his baby sister or climb on top of the TV (as he did yesterday).
If it was you, you are brilliant and thank you very much for the illuminating imagery.
