Last evening we had our Support Group and had a few new faces and a few new children. The networking and contact at these groups is extremely valuable for those parents who have limited contact with the Autistic Spectrum Group/treatment teams, etc. For example we had a couple with their children come from over 75 miles away...just to make contact, to network and to help us work together with those in other counties. There must be hundreds, thousands of parents and children throughout the United States who need to network, to find support, to find the treatments that work for their child; the key is to keep looking, keep searching, and keep the faith that we are going to find the answers we are looking for. Remember that just 10 years ago the diagnosis of Autism was basically a dead end street for treatment; now we have multiple avenues of treatment---some that even are very beneficial.....and many are there to take advantage of parents and/or clients who are willing to buy stuff like pond scum (anyone remember junk called Blue/Green Alge?) to get better. Do you really think stuff like Focus Faster (I am using a fake name here will make you think better? More in my next post. Dr. Ron

We kinda came up with that same issue in the previous meeting, where the person who took over the Meetup group lived in Tampa and it seemed an awful difficulty and inconvenience for her to make it to these meetings... and we tried telling her to either look for other meetings in and around her area or, to try setting up her own little group... especially since she already had taken over the meetup site. But we asked her politely if she would change the name of her group to make it not affiliated with our group anymore if she did so or to speak with you first, either way.

But I think it would be wonderful to branch out into other communities... there are obviously so many people out there who need the help and support who simply do not have it. You are offering a great service by just offering a safe place for people to get together and vent, exchange information, etc. It has been wonderful so far. I think branching out would be even more wonderful, if we can find reliable resources to help us do so.
