    totoro Mom? What's a GFG?

    I was doing some research for a friend here and stumbled across this. Some of these I am sure are not for everyone.

    But the lists are so concise that I had to post it. I use so much of the Autism therapies that I always bookmark things like this.This was from and Arizona link so I am looking into a few of the other things I found.

    Unfortunately we still have few to no services for Mentally Ill kids. I try to sneak into the ones for ADHD and Autism. Once I explain they are usually good about it.


    Autism Society of America: 1-800-3-AUTISM; www.autism-society.org/ Publishes a magazine, sends monthly emails, hosts a
    national meeting and maintains a good website. Most importantly, they are the major lobbying body for people with autism,
    including efforts to increase research on autism, increase education opportunities, and generally improve the lives of people with
    autism. You can join ASA on the website and click on the JOIN tab in the upper blue bar.

    Autism Research Institute: Founded by Bernard Rimland, a parent of an autistic adult and a leading advocate of research on autism. Publishes a quarterly newsletter summarizing current research on autism, and maintains a website full of relevant information about autism. ARI also has excellent Publication Packets of many topics that can be ordered inexpensively on topics ranging from Auditory Integration Training to Self Injury to Vaccination information. ARI also sponsors the Defeat Autism Now! approach to autism. DAN!! conferences, held bi-annually, are the leading conferences on biomedical treatments for autism.
