After seeing so many support groups and social gathering groups for families who are dealing with autism, we had to ask ourselves, what about the families like us who can't make the events or support group meetings??? That is the reason for starting our online facebook group. We are hoping to give parents and other family members as well as the person who is actually having the cope with the autism, a place to meet others, hear other families stories and hopefully share much needed information. I have pasted the link below! Thank you! Please share and please join!
We are still adding to our links page, but I thought that I would let you know that we just added the following links to our local area links. If you know a good autism organization or non profit that you would like for us to add to our links page, please comment with the link. If you are a provider and would like to advertise with us, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
