Judith Bluestone, a beacon of hope for many, is gone

Filed under: HANDLE, Judith Bluestone — Pathways @ 4:00 pm

My mentor and friend, Judith Bluestone, passed away Wednesday, February 18, 2009. I feel blessed to have known her and to be able to help carry her vision of hope and healing to the world. The Autism community and humanity have suffered a great loss. Judith passed her wisdom, compassion, and respect for the human condition to those who utilize the principles of HANDLE in their work and daily lives. I will always be grateful to have known her and she will be missed by all who knew her.

The HANDLE Institute will continue its work to help those with behavioral and learning challenges with holistic treatment. The official announcement of Judith’s passing can be found here:
