Autistic Spectrum Disorder

I'm hoping that this can become a place for us to share information about ASD, & tips for coping with some of the issues we face as parents, siblings, children of those with ASD. I don't know if you can invite people to this board. If you'd like someone invited but can't do it, let me know & I'll invite them. Also, if you'd prefer not to be involved but can't remove yourself, let me know & I'll delete you. This is just a test to see if we an use Pinterest in a way that benefits a select group.
