Sesame Street announces an Autism Initiative
Autism with a Glass of Wine: I'm an autism momma with a bit of an edge. My page is NOT 100% autism ~ it's also about fun, having a sense of humor and sharing experiences with eachother. As a parent to a child with special needs you can feel like an outsider -- like you have to be serious and all consuming of the condition.
Special Needs Network: Special Needs Network (SNN) is based in Los Angeles and is California’s leading grassroots autism advocacy organization. As a nonprofit organization, SNN was established to help low-income and underserved families faced with autism and other developmental disabilities. The organization focuses on raising public awareness, impacting public policy, increasing education and access to resources for families, children and adults.
Autism After 16 is dedicated to providing information and analysis of adult autism issues, with the emphasis on analysis. Anyone can Google “autism + adults” and discover a vast array of programs, documents, and products. Our intention here is to try to help adults with ASD and their families make sense of what’s out there. Our big focus out of the gate will be Transition issues, since so many of you are struggling with Transition right now.
