As a parent of children with autism, I am frustrated!!
I was just looking for autism resources in my community and guess what I found? NOTHING!!
I have calls and emails in to the Autism Societies of America and Florida to see what they can come up with.
This is very disheartening.
I know that there are individuals in this community that live with autism every day and to not have the appropriate resources except for them being over 3 hours away is horrible!!
I am lucky that my children live in an area where there are a lot of resources that when I needed them they were there.
I worry about parents who are where I was years ago in this area. There appears to be nowhere to turn for them - no outlets, no support groups, nothing.
I'm not going to give up - I'm going to work on getting resources here and raising awareness that support is needed. How am I going to do it - I have no idea but the impulse is a strong one to do something about it!
