  • I have a 13 yo with autism and I remember feeling very alone when he was diagnosed at 2 1/2. Have you contacted the Autism Society of America to find out if they have a local chapter near you? Their bimonthly support groups were my saving grace and where I met an incredible group of moms who I am still very close to. If not an ASA, then possibly a First in Families group? Google information and find a place where you can meet other moms with special needs kids - I found that very helpful!
