Hi, I am a mother of 4, two adult kids and two school age boys (7 and 5 years old).  My 7-year-old has autism.  He was diagnosed when he was around 2 years of age.  LIfe is getting difficult as he gets older (and bigger) and looking for friends and support.

Hi, I have four children.  Gabe is the youngest and recently its been suggested that I seek out a professional who can diagnose Aspergers.  Gabe is in first grade.  School work is difficult.  We are searching for hobbies and friends outside of school.
