Hey everyone,

I just wanted to share this link with you all. It is an application that you download and everytime you do online shopping at certain online retailers it donates a part of your payment to autism reseach/family support. It DOES NOT increase the purchase of your cost...the donation is taken out of what you would already be paying. Target, Macy's, Best Buy, Amazon, Toys R Us, and eBay are just a few of the many participating stores. I have a young daughter who is on the autism spectrum so I am new to the ASD community, but I want to start helping out in whatever ways I can.

Thanks
Laura

He's 5 - 6 in January.
I'll be able to help you navigate the services in Jersey in the next month or so.....my neighbor across the street (from where I'll be) also has a son with Autism - he's 17 - she's been advocating for him for YEARS....she's a wealth of information - I just need to get up there and sit and talk with her.

My son has Autism as well and I'm about to find out more than I probably ever wanted to know about NJ services when we transfer him to school there in the next month or 2. I'll pass on any info I find out, Laura.

Thanks Tracey. My daughter is almost 2 so they won't diagnose her until she is closer to her third birthday and starts school, but she receives early intervention OT 3x/wk. They are leaning towards PDD-NOS right now. I know that once we start the process for getting into preschool I will probably have a million questions about her IEP. What state do you live in? I'm in NJ. Do the benefits regarding ASD differ from state to state?

Hey Laura, my son is severely autistic and my daughter has Aspergers. If you have any questions about ASD just let me know.

Will do! My oldest is on the spectrum, so this is close to my heart ♥
