    I have an interview for a 3 yr old boy who is/has high functioning autism. I was wondering if anyone could guide me to some websites that would have some helpful information for me to learn about it.

    is pretty good for all neurological disorders. Look under Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD)/Autism.

    As well as childbrain - read anything by Tony Attwood. And another website -

    James Williams is a young man with high-functioning autism who has written a number of articles on his point of view and also goes around speaking to people and organisations about it. Reading his website a few years ago gave me enough information and ammunition to get difficult child 3 out of mainstream schooling (I'd been trying for years and getting vetoed by our education authorities).
