I have a 12 year old son with Autism. I also belong to a great support team here where I work with the social skills education and training. I am here to answer questions or provide more resources. You can contact me at [email protected] first advice would be to seek out an ABA therapist. It is the one thing (and I have tried them all) that I know has significantly made a difference in our lives.

Are you in the Memphis area? If so there is a place called Autism Solution Center that might be able to help you. I've met 2 volunteers from there, and it sounds wonderful.

I have a teen autistic son. I recommend the yahoo group called reversingautism. I hope you join. The information I have received there has helped me more than anywhere else.

They have a chat room where you can talk to other moms of Autistic children. Best wishes.

I have a 10 year old son who was diagnosed 8 years ago. One thing I have learned is that all autistic children are not alike. Therapy is the best thing for them. I live in KY and am not sure what support groups are available in your state (NC?). If you want a local support group I would suggest asking your son's therapists or special ed teachers. Before my son was diagnosed I don't think I new anyone with autism and now it seems like I know a lot of children with autism. There is a lot out there, but getting through each day and trying to figure out what will work for your child and what will not work can be exhausting.
