AUTISTIC FUTURE: A FUTURE OF OUR OWN

My name is Larkin Tay­lor-Park­er. I run this blog, study law at the Uni­ver­si­ty of Geor­gia, engage in a lot of extra-cur­ric­u­lar advo­ca­cy for the rights of peo­ple with dis­abil­i­ties, try to stay con­nect­ed to the Autis­tic com­mu­ni­ty, and play the tuba at the slight­est provocation.

I think a lot about equal access to the legal sys­tem, pover­ty in Amer­i­ca, dis­abil­i­ty rights, build­ing a strong Autis­tic com­mu­ni­ty, how to be the kind of dis­abled young pro­fes­sion­al who will make things eas­i­er for peo­ple who come after, build­ing a bet­ter, more civ­i­lized inter­net, and tubas.

I hope to prac­tice dis­abil­i­ty rights law and have the same mail­ing address for twelve con­sec­u­tive months in the near future. This blog is about my quest for those two things, my hopes for Autis­tics and oth­er dis­abled peo­ple, and goings on in the dis­abil­i­ty com­mu­ni­ty. I am open to guest blog­ging, adver­tis­ing, and prod­uct review oppor­tu­ni­ties for prod­ucts and pub­li­ca­tions that are gen­uine­ly worth­while. If you are inter­est­ed in know­ing what oth­er social media pro­files I do or have helped man­age, that infor­ma­tion is avail­able upon request. I can write on the issues I know in voic­es oth­er than the one dis­played here.

If you find any fea­ture of this blog inac­ces­si­ble, please con­tact me and tell me about the prob­lem. I believe the inter­net is for every­one. I designed and built this site myself, and I intend it to be ful­ly acces­si­ble. If I have fall­en short of that goal, let me know, and I will fix it as soon as I can. Many thanks to the League of Mov­able Type for the fonts you see here.
