Hey I'm looking into applying for social security disability for my 3 year old with ASD , I was wondering if any of you ladies have it or have gone through the processes of applying for it ?

Thank you. Believe me they'll come. I'm a hairstylist at a walmart salon, and I keep running in to clients with a child or another loved one on the spectrum. So I figured we should all get together and fight(lol) the schools together. We had our 2nd meeting last thursday and we went from about 3 members incl. me, to about 7. And our small local paper has a Living on the go section for the community for free, so i submitted the meeting, and am going to continue to do so. Then the paper called me and did a story on ASD and included my info, sparks have been flying ever since. So don't give up on the idea,just pray about it, and follow your heart.

Quoting TheJerseyGirl:

 I just love what you are doing! We don;t have that here in NJ...maybe I should start one but I always wonder if anyone will show up!

Quoting she-ra2000:

I live in Aiken,SC and I've started a support group for parents and family members that have a loved one on the spectrum. Click the link https://www.facebook.com/groups/asdconnections/ to join. We'll be having monthly meetings and planning activities for our children. We also have a member of the SC Autism Society who works with the Parent-School Partnership.

You can apply and see what happens, but I'm waiting for a decision on my 2nd appeal. I guess it depends on how severe your child is in their opinion. So good luck :)

 I wanted to say thank you for the links of resources. Some of them I already had. However just a heads up to anyone. When I clicked on the Autism-PDD one I got a virus. Thank god my anti-virus caught it. :(

I have used the Stages Language Builder cards for several years to help build language and they now released an app! Much more affordable than the cards and obviously more durable. My son LOVES using the iPad so it is a perfect fit! http://bit.ly/1dWol1E

I stumbled upon some great free ABA flashcards and data tracking sheets! I love these cards, but I hate the price so I've never invested. Maybe this is a good way to test the waters? Has anyone used them or are familiar with these cards? http://bit.ly/1taEvLo
