SPECIAL NOTE: Okay. There was supposed to a (relatively) glitzy new site here by now, and in fact any reader who wants a sneak look at it can e-mail me for the URL. The designer did his part, but between marketing a new book and handling the workload of about three people after my boss was laid off at my day job in mid-January, not to mention mastering a new breed of HTML, the revamp of JeffsLife is lagging. Hoping for March, and if that doesn't work out I'll post essays here until it does. Next Update, then, about March of 2009.
FUNDING SOURCES: I've posted a new page of corporate funding sources for non-profits. The page is a work in progress and any additional input would be great, but I like to think it's a good place to start for organizations looking to tap into additional funds.
EDUCATORS: I've begun a mailing to professors and other educators of medical ethics, early-education, and special-needs education, offering myself as a guest speaker for their classes. Lectures can be in-person or via speakphone or Webcast. If you know of an educator who might be interested, please e-mail me, and thanks!
PODCASTS: Topics include Medicaid waiver woes, hitting the road for summer fun with an autistic boy, our "wish list" for services for Alex, Ned on being Alex's brother, stares of strangers, and other topics. Click and listen at Today's Special!
Current essays look at challenges for the boys, a new design for this site, Ned's reading, and my bending over.
