Traveling with Kids with Autism
'My son, Randy, was in an accident as an adult that changed his abilities. Since
our lives changed that day, I’ve spent a lot of time working with other families who have a special needs family
member, including children and adults who have autism. I’m not proud to say that before I started volunteering, I
hadn’t spent much time with people of any age who have ASD, so it’s truly been moving to make connections with
these families. Our experiences aren’t exactly the same, but in a lot of ways, we have much in common.
I thought it might be a good idea to add some supportive ASD-related information
to my own site, and I noticed that you have a lot of great resources for those with autism (and their families)
already. I don’t know if you’re looking for more of this kind of information, but if you are, this list might be
worth adding to your site.
