  • I love this site. It lets you feel like you are not alone with this problem which affects the entire family. I have met many kids with autism because my child had cerebral palsy due to a near drowning when he was 13 months old. I took care of him until he died at 18. So many family issues involved which can destroy families. I believe the family needs a lot of support and things have so much improved since this happened to my Brian. I could write a book so I will stop. Rita

  • On the website, I read the article about early detection. The article said to worst thing to do is to “wait and see.” So true. I have taught students who has autism for many years. Those who received early intervention often do very well. Very informative website.


    I have a child with autism, so visiting the website encouraged me to know there are so many others with children who live with this disorder. I am heartsick over the bullying my son faces from this.

  • Suzanne Deleon

    I have an awesome, loving, and quirky 11 year old son with Asperger’s Syndrome. He was misdiagnosed for the first 8 years of his life. As I read the many articles on Autism United’s website, I felt much compassion for the families that don’t yet have a diagnosis or the support that is so readily available to them. I say to them, hold strong, love and accept each and every strange or quirky behavior your child displays. Never apologize for it. They see life differently than we do. Different is not bad, different is just different and unique.

    • Thank you so much Suzanne! It is so hard being in the spot where you just dont know. I think as moms we know our kids the best. If we know something is not right then it probably isn’t. And you are exactly right! Thank you for saying that about how they see life differently and to accept and love that about them. You are an encouragement to me since I am just starting this journey! Thank you again!

  • I learned that Asperger’s and Rett Syndrome are both forms of Autism. Also, I wanted to wish you and your family good luck on your journey. With love, patience and the proper treatment and education, anything is possible.

There is virtually no support for moms like me and kids like her, except on the internet. I am very grateful for the other parents I’ve met online!

So it is helpful to look over all the signs!! Thanks to you both for spreading the awareness!!
