    I find it very difficult emotionally for you to address you son’s issues to strangers. To just bring them up and out into the world—First how would you address the multiple issues. Start if iabout his teach skills, specific examples of class work. keep notes of the progress from the last 3 month compare and contrast it.

    You must know what you want, how much you want a swek (service wise) they will tell you weere it is hem

    I am a very blessed Grandmother. God has Blessed me with 2 grandsons with Autism. My one daughter has the resourses to get help for her son but my other daughter dose not have the resourses. Her and her husband are very hard working parents that hardly make the bills and put food on the table. What I am wondering is my Grandson is not 3 years old and can not speak one word and I have heard about these I pads that can help them with communicating. I just can’t not find the info i need to see if we can get him one and get the help they need to afford to get what he needs. Could you please help me find the info we need to see if there is anyway we can get him one. and what it would take to get it for him. Thank you. Rebecca Dokken

    Hi Mr Peete, I have a daughter named Alanis who has Autism and was diagnosed with PDD/NOS, at the age of 2 and a half yrs old. Alanis is now thirteen, She has high functioning Autism and she has her meltdowns sometimes when she gets frustrated about something that’s not in routine order. Routine is a big issue for her each day. Her things have to be in a routine order everyday and when driving with her in the van and if I take a different street home, her day is out of control. Do you have these issues with your son?
