Autism & Authors: August 12 on Cape Cod

On August 12 there will be an exciting autism event on Cape Cod, and I will be part of it! The event “Autism & Authors” is a fundraiser for Cape Cod Village, an organization founded by Lauren and Bob Jones, a pair of autism powerhouse parents. Cape Cod Village is their vision for a vital community for adults with autism, one that will support, house, and connect its residents to each other and the community at large. Read here about the organization and the event, and how you can attend and/or help out! Creations like Cape Cod Village are keystones for autism families’ quality of life, because we the parents are the driving forces behind our children’s lives.


I am autistic, an author, a mom, a professional in the field and am interested in this topic of housing, employment, community for autistic adults. Would love to follow this to learn of these happenings!

I am so excited by this project and also know Lauren and Bob. This project is so needed and such a wonderful opportunity to help build a community with a connection to the larger community. I’ve felt for a long time that our individuals, your sons and daughters, are “plunked” into a nice neighborhood, in a very nice house, but are never really a part of that neighborhood. The people I’ve worked with would love to have their friends living close by. Looking forward to listening to you authors speak on Monday:) Michele
