Welcome to LA Parents of Children with Autism and Other Special Needs! My name is Ronda Johnston and my daughter's autism diagnosis changed our lives forever for which I couldn't be more greatful! We were lucky because we took advantage of many of the therapies which changed our direction radically. At 5.5yrs Alex barely spoke a couple of words and had been kicked out of 3 schools. Today Alex is 10.5 an A student, dances 4 styles of dance, plays 2 instruments, and loves to hike, bike and golf. Alex works with me to help children and families like us so that all children get to the best possible resources because we believe all Kids count.
You are joining our groups at a very important time as we are about to Rally LA with a new Campaign. Because LA is a town that is spread out as are the needs of Autism and other special needs it has become nearly impossible to quickly bring the needs of families and the needs of service providers together efficiently. For years this has not set well with me so I am creating a program to do that. Professionals and other groups around LA will now be given a free page to share photos and information on. Parents, other groups around LA, and professionals may also use forums to help them understand how to get there needs met. Please contact if you are a professional or Organizer or if you are a parent looking to help.
We are a grassroots resource group who works to align the vested parties with one another to provide information quick and we also help with fund raising, activism, new parent emergency care and continued education and support for all parties. We rely on other groups to meet other needs of the community and we are happy to help you locate them.
If you are a parent with a new diagnosis or a parent that needs support now please contact me directly so that we can help you get the support that we all need in the beginning.
