AUTISTIC FUTURE: A FUTURE OF OUR OWN

My name is Larkin Tay­lor-Park­er. I prac­tice law in North Car­oli­na and usu­al­ly have at least one side job out­side of the legal field at any giv­en time. I enjoy play­ing the tuba, dri­ving and work­ing on my Land Cruis­er, and rid­ing and main­tain­ing a cou­ple of vin­tage Eng­lish three-speed bicy­cles in my spare time.

I still keep up this blog to an extent, but I am plac­ing less empha­sis on writ­ing about dis­abil­i­ty issues in my spare time than I did before. After sev­en years of post-sec­ondary edu­ca­tion, a peri­od of my life which con­tained much finan­cial strug­gle, I have decid­ed to invest more of my time into build­ing a secure finan­cial future for the next cou­ple of years. After that, I hope to go back to more writ­ing and vol­un­teer­ing. I’m grate­ful that I have the oppor­tu­ni­ties I do, and I want to use them so that I will be in a posi­tion to sus­tain myself and help oth­ers.

Because I’m focused on my finances at this time, I’m accept­ing few­er requests for things like writ­ing about Autis­tic issues for oth­er people’s pub­li­ca­tions, espe­cial­ly when those requests are unpaid. I regret that I can­not help with every wor­thy project. How­ev­er, if you want some­thing from me, it nev­er hurts to ask so long as you are polite.

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.
