One project we liked and are currently sponsoring is the Autism Railroad. This is a project to promote Autism Awareness and to help those with Autism. This project is similar to "Flat Stanley" with a railroad theme. As people participate, the railroad tracks across the United States (World) will be shown. For each city that participates, landmarks or information which the participant provides will be added to the site. This will be a geography lesson as well as lesson to help those with Autism communicate both orally and in writing. Please participate in the project by visiitng Autism Railroad.
