1. Autism Research Institute
Parents As Partners
CSA provides information about autism to parents and professionals and conducts research
on the efficacy of various therapeutic interventions.
2. AUTISTIC CHILD PARENTING
The Effect of the Holidays on the Autistic Child
Because kids on the spectrum are always looking for familiar things to make sense of their world, the jam packed holiday calendar may present some problems.
3. AUTISM NETWORK INTERNATIONAL
Don't Mourn for Us
Carol Watkins, MD, states, "This affirming article is by Jim Sinclair, an
individual with high functioning autism. He suggests that parents should focus on and
celebrate the child as he is rather than persistently mourn the child they never had. This
can be a good handout for parents."
4. THE INCLUSION INSTITUTES
Facilitated Communication Institute
Facilitated communication is an alternative means of expression for people who cannot speak or whose speech is highly limited and who cannot point reliably
5. ASPERGER'S DISORDER
Kaan R. Ozbayrak, MD, maintains this site which contains a variety of information,
including frequently asked questions about Asperger's. Also, the site publishes a list of
clinicians who indicate that they evaluate individuals with Asperger's.
ASPERGER SYNDROME INFORMATION AND SUPPORT
What Is Asperger Syndrome?
"Although I was recently reminded that there is no oasis or paradise for persons with
Asperger Syndrome, I sincerely hope that they, along with parents and professionals, will
find a bit of shade and support via the information presented and links available at this
site." Barb Kirby
