This quote from George Bernard Shaw exemplifies where we come from:
“This is the true joy in life, being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one. Being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances, complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it what I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die, for the harder I work, the more I live. I rejoice in life for its own sake. Life is no brief candle to me. It is a sort of splendid torch which I have got hold of for the moment and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible before handing it on to future generations.”
Lights on the Spectrum was founded by Larry Berman, a lighting guy for most of his life. He's also the parent of an adult daughter who is on the Spectrum. Larry and his wife Laurie have been involved in the world of autism since their daughter Rachel was a young child.
Rachel is married and is a licensed Occupational Therapist, an Autism Self Advocate, and also acting as a liaison between Lights on the Spectrum and Lighting Companies and Neurodiversity Employment organizations.
Larry created Lights on the Spectrum as a vehicle to focus the vision, power, and energy of the global lighting community and make a brighter future for people on the Autism Spectrum.
