Hi Tiffany
Let me extend to you my personal welcome to our AutismOne Social Network. I see a handsome son you are holding; he obvioulys inherited from his Mom.
Now on with the commercial. :-)
AutismOne is now the “one-stop-shopping center” for information about autism. We have the annual conference in Chicago, AutismOne radio, the Elizabeth Birt Center for Autism Law and Advocacy and now the AutismOne Social Network (and more to come).
I notice that you’ve not made any entries into your profile. Remember, this is a social network. Part of the function of a social network is to meet and interact with others who have common interests. Of course autism is a common interest. But there is more than that. Individuals like to know about a person before becoming a “friend.” That’s where the profile comes in. So whenever you can find the time, please fill in some of the entries of your profile. To do that just click on “My User Menu” next to the Welcome area on the right. From the resulting menu click on “Edit My Profile” and you will be in business.
Helping you interact with others is one of the many things we can do for you. Now here’s something you can do for us. Every new community requires a good hard kick start to get going. We need you to help us with that. Log in on a regular basis and read the blogs and articles then write a blog yourself. It can be on any subject of interest to you, preferably with some relevance to autism but not necessarily. It can be short or long, whatever it takes for you to express your thoughts. If you have a question then ask it in a blog--people read then they respond. If you see something with which you agree or disagree then please add a comment with your thoughts. This is an open community designed to help and support. We like to hear all sides.
I am looking forward to reading your opinions in future blogs and/or articles.
With my best regards
Will Price, CFO

Hello Tiffany,

Welcome to our Autism One Community.

I too am a parent of a child with autism, He is now a teenager and going into his junior year of high school. I guess you can say I have been around the block more than a couple of times literally! LOL... Jordan used to run around the block 10 times a day for two years without fail, To look at the bright side, I was skinny.... Anyway there is a wealth of information here please check out our blogs. Angelina Strum is a good resource she is a special ed teacher extremely knowledgeable. I share a lot of Jordan's experiences on my blog. Mingle with everyone get to know people, this website has so much to offer, Join a group I suggest the "Yoga Group" or create one of your own. Keep in touch and if you need anything just ask! Rhonda

I need some words of wisdom from parents who have "been there." Our 4-year-old son has been on the GFCF diet for 4 months now, and has shown improvement.
