Autism Speaks and The Home Depot® have partnered to shine a light on autism during Autism Awareness Month in April. The Home Depot is selling blue Coleman LED lanterns and blue light bulbs, offering people across the country the opportunity to raise autism awareness through Autism Speaks’ Light it Up Blue initiative. A portion of each sale will go to Autism Speaks to fund research, advocacy, family services, and awareness for families struggling with this disorder.

    Vera, sorry you have not found support in your area. Try contacting your sons’ school. Special Ed teachers should be able help you with local resources. Your church (if you attend one) or your Child’s doctor can also guide you. As for sleep problems, try melantoni ask your doctor for a correct dosage according to his age and weight.
    Think almost everyone wishes we had financial assistance so that we can stay home with our kids. I have never heard of any financial help. On the contrary I find my self working extra hours to afford his treatments and supplements that insurance does not pay.
