April 2017 has been an extraordinary month. First, my deep dive article for Spectrum on the challenges faced by young adults with autism was republished in SLATE. A few days later, I was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship. And then, an old project I thought was dead came back to life. I am deeply honored and grateful to the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation for the grant that will enable me to take a year off from teaching to focus on a major reporting project on families and addiction. 2017 has been a pretty amazing year so far!
