1.    Help a parent! Need to know something? Want to contact other parents? This is YOUR space:

·       I am the mother and grandmother of children with Asperger's .  Recently,
my daughter-in-law expressed frustration regarding finding resources
for her son.  As we got deeper into the discussion, my daughter and I felt
the need for a virtual resource centre for parents with children with Asperger's. But before our webpage is up, we would like to survey parents to determine what issues and resources most concern them.  To that end, we have developed a survey which we are distributing with the hope of collecting information which will help us build a truly powerful resource.
Please be clear that it is not our intention to give advice, but rather to
draw on professionals and resources that we can direct parents to.   If you are interested in filling out the survey please contact  Margaret Florczak.

2.  NEWS 

·      Alleged autism centre bait-and-switch.  Dawn Steele ducks into a packed Main Street coffee shop, shaking the raindrops off her coat. As the busy mom of a 17-year-old son, who is autistic, Steele says she is well aware of the services her son will need to live as an independent, thriving adult - ranging from community college learning support to job-hunting assistance.  The provincial government has already committed $20 million towards the construction of a new $34-million facility dedicated to supporting people, like Steele's son Sean, with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). The project is being spearheaded by the non-profit group Pacific Autism Centre Society (PACS).  Click here to read more.

·      Living Near Freeway Autism Risk?  Click here to find full study report.

·      Autism And Traffic Pollution Link Found.  A child who lives near a freeway has double the risk of autism compared to other kids, researchers from California revealed in the journal Environmental Health Perspectives. There has been a considerable increase in autism diagnoses over the last few years, which cannot be fully explained just by more awareness and changes in diagnostic criteria, the authors explained. According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), the incidence of autism in the USA rose by 57% between 2002 and 2006.  Click here to read full article.
