The Sound of a Sentence

As Constance Hale says

The playful language found in children’s books comes naturally to us when we are young.

As we mature, our delight in sounds becomes less visceral.

[W]e often lose the child’s love of chaotic vowels and knocking syllables. Even when writing about poetry, we bog down in the language of academia. Our sentences get longer as we pile up clauses and struggle to state a thesis. Then, in our professional lives, we get tangled up in bureaucratese and forget our innate ability to play with sound and sense.

In order to highlight the growing need for concern and awareness about Autism, the Autism Society has been celebrating April as an awareness month since 1970. It creates a special opportunity for people to educate themselves and others about Autism and issues within the Autism community. Come check out some of the great information that we have to share in the Todd Library as well.
