Here are the links to some posts about some pretty amazing folks who've done so much for the autism community and the world! While athletes, movie stars and entertainers make zillions of dollars and are household names, it's folks like these who truly make a difference in people's lives with little to no recognition! I've listed them in alphabetical order to avoid any confusion in regards to order of importance. This is by FAR a complete list, and continues to be under construction!!!
