All Bullying Is Unacceptable
We must send a message to teachers that bullying students won't be tolerated by creating federal anti-bullying laws that address not only peer-to-peer bullying, but also teacher-student bullying.
Sign for the implementation of anti-bullying laws!

We need to remember that children with autism eventually become adults, leaving many families wondering what direction they'll take once their children grow up. These parents are not alone. Cathy and her husband Jim Gott, a former Dodger's pitcher, were stumped as to what would happen to their son Danny, who lives on the spectrum, once he was in need of employment opportunities.
Hear about how the Gotts family founded Danny's Farm, a place that offers services for both kids and adults on the spectrum. It has become a nurturing, loving place for these individuals. Listen to the firsthand accounts from the Gotts and many other families who take their loved ones to Danny's Farm to take advantage of their services.
The Amber alert was established to notify communities of missing children and provide information about the situation in question. If a child with autism goes missing, though, the circumstances may be very different than those of a child without autism.
Children with autism can wander away from their homes or families without understanding the dangers around them. There have been many unnecessary deaths due to children wandering away and getting lost or falling into a body of water.
We need to establish a system for children with autism much like the Amber alert. It would provide the circumstances of the disappearance as well as information about their condition -- whether verbal or non-verbal, nicknames, favorite spots, etc.
