Splash is a seriously awesome program. MIT runs it the weekend before Thanksgiving every year. College students and older can go teach pretty much anything, and then 7th-12th graders can sign up for whatever combinations of classes they want. I took Fractional Calculus and Make Chainmail there when I was in high school, both of which were awesome. So, everyone should register to teach if they can, and I highly recommend the program for kids in the right age group, autistic or not. You can register here as a teacher or student, and they have other cool programs too. I've seen people from as far away as New Jersey come up to Boston for Splash.

Note For Anyone Writing About Me
Guide to Writing About Me
I am an Autistic person,not a person with autism. I am also not Aspergers. The diagnosis isn't even in the DSM anymore, and yes, I agree with the consolidation of all autistic spectrum stuff under one umbrella. I have other issues with the DSM.
I don't like Autism Speaks. I'm Disabled, not differently abled, and I am an Autistic activist. Self-advocate is true, but incomplete.
