Today’s virtual interview is with Janelle V. from Bloomington, Ind. 

Autism Speaks: What are you Lighting Up Blue?
Janelle V.:
We are lighting our chapter house blue to show Alpha Xi Delta’s support for World Autism Awareness Day to the rest of the greek community near by! We will be passing out blue ribbons leading up to this day and want the community to help us recognize World Autism Awareness Day.

AS: How are you going to light your chapter house blue?
JV: We will be placing blue spot lights in our front lawn and lighting up the front of the house!

AS: What would you like to see lit up next year?
JV: We would love to see buildings in downtown Bloomington lit up!

    I write a blog called, Change The World; Write A Song. I often write about my son who has Asperger’s Syndrome. He is 17 years old and a singer/songwriter. Music has been a tool he uses to understand himself and others better.

    I built a page and copied the link given, and it says that there is no security clearance for the page. I’ve tried to different computers, and the link will not pop up. How are people supposed to donate on my team, if they can’t view my son’s web page I built through you guys?

    Please respond.

    My son, TJ with Aspergers, 13yrs old, is doing awesome and through music, religion and yoga has helped him cope through life daily challenges. He sings and plays piano and makes his own music too. I count my blessings everyday for such a beautiful and talented young man he is becoming ;-) Love, Mommy and his best advocate too! Light up Blue!!!

        Hi Maggie,

        Yes, there are some wonderful products on the market that can help. Thank you! My husband and I started our beautiful 9 year old son who is challenged with Autism on a nutritional supplement 115 days ago that has worked wonders … noticed by family, friends, teachers and doctors … one missing piece of the puzzle at a time.

        God Bless,
