My nephew is autistic and I spoke with a really nice lady who lives in allen when he was having issues at school. I can't remember where I found her name, but I think it was an organization that she heads for autistic children in the area.
She told me that there are three yahoo groups in the area and she is over the mafea group.
Here are the names of them, they are pretty helpful and could help you get in touch with some other moms in the area. She said the mafea group members are mostly in the mckinney/allen/frisco area.
Good Luck!
Go to Yahoo! then choose groups on the menu and type in these names! I'm a member of all three.

Hi R.,

I am a local speech-langauge pathologist, and I have a free social group for young children with special needs, called Play Pals. Our next outing will be in March, and it would offer you an opportunity to meet many other parents facing similar challenges and concerns. To register (it's free) simply visit, and click on the dancing Play Pal icon. It would be my pleasure to add you to our list, and invite you to future events.

Best Regards,

I'm not sure where Claude, Texas is, but I know of a great website where you can look for parents facing similar issues in your area. is the web address for the Children's Special Needs Network. This is a non-profit organization started by the mother of a special needs child in Central Texas, but it is spreading all over the state. There is a link for the Autism society of america also.
Do yourself a favor and sign up for the newsletter, in order to hear about upcoming conferences. The conferences are great places to meet people whose children have similar disorders.
My 7 year old has Occupational and Speech therapy with a boy who has autism related to food allergies. His mother has put him on a special diet designed to avoid all of his food sensitivities, and his behavior has improved dramatically.
I'm new to this web site, so I don't feel comfortable posting my phone number, but if you want to send me an off-line e-mail I can see about getting you in touch with this other mother.

The mountain of evidence points to thimerosal (mercury) as the cause of autism.

There are many methods to treat autism, but the DAN protocol seems to be the most effective. Here is a website where you can get more information:

If you want more information on autism and mercury poisoning here is a link as well:

I hope this is helpful,
