What we're about
Do you have a child or 2 with social communication disorder (new term for Aspergers) or with anxiety? I do (both) and thought we should get together if you are looking for any of the following things: emotional support, networking (eg., information on resources, learn about how to find things to do with your kids or find social avenues for them), connect our kids at some point, share info on how to save money on your health insurance, meet up in some other way for just pure fun, the IEP system (eg., when to join special program in town or push for out of town placement) and so forth. I figure each of us has something to offer that we have figured out or just your energy to help where you can if you are more new to the process. I am going to selfishly limit membership for this group to folks with kids in middle school as my son is going into 7th grade and my feeling is that those of you with kids too much younger or older would be focused on a lot of different kind of challenges (plus I have to first make sure I don't get too many in the group). However, this is open to revision for certain circumstances; I'm very new to the "run the group" thing, but no one else was doing it around here. Lastly, if you are a patient of mine currently or have been it might be a good idea for you to check with me before joining so it feels comfortable for us both.
