Story Idea-Help

This person wants coverage on where to go and what to do if their child is diagnosed with autism. This item was emailed to this blog --AR

I think you should cover were parents can get help once they find out if they have a child with autism. It is very stressful to find out and lots of couples split up. There are thousands of sights that tell you the symptoms but not many that tell you about programs, funding, the best schools, and how to keep your marriage and family together. You need to tell people about the best case and the worst case. You need to show how many different families cope with autism, so what they are doing can be passed down.

None of this pointing fingers about what may cause Autism. We all know all that stuff. We need to know what we as a family and a community can do to help autistic people and their families cope with autism. Were can we help find a cure? Who is working to find a cure? What companies are supporters of Autism research?

There is no known cure. Autism appears to be genetic, and present at birth. There's no credible reason to believe it is cause by vaccines or metals.

Federal law says schools must provide Free and Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) to all children. Know your rights. Advocate for your child. Become the Parent From Hell, and never apologize.
