I took a day to gather my thoughts on the trip. I had a wonderful time. I talked to so many people. This was a great experience to travel and meet people that have been touched by the series. The Internet is such a powerful tool to reach people on a global scale. That's exactly what this series did. By not only reporting the issues that surround autism, but showing the process of the series on this blog, built a strong audience.
I hope the panel brought topics to the forefront on how to develop a stronger relationship between the autism community and journalists. I was humbled to be part of the collective conversation.
