Greetings and salutations!  I found your website after doing some research on support for my son's high functioning autism, and fell in love with it after I read the thread about "you know you live in an ASD house when..." 


My son, we'll call him The Dirt Block, was diagnosed with HFA w/ sensory perception issues (not enough to say disorder) on April 14, 2016.  He is a wonderfully intelligent, verbal boy, who has absolutely NO idea how to cope with the humanity he sees around him daily.  We are very blessed to have found the doctors and other professionals that have helped us to begin to understand what is going on with him, and hope that through support forums like this, we can find other families that are in the same circumstance to commiserate with.


We have local support as well, but I kind of feel, like many others do, that there is a certainly wonderfulness to being able to find support and like-minded individuals at any time of day or night thanks to the wonders of the internet.  I look forward to many amazing conversations here, though I understand that there are now far fewer of them here than there used to be.

I am also from America.  I have tended to drift in and out over the last few years, as our life has just been hard to keep up with.  You'll find amazing support here, as well as kindred spirits in your troubles, and a wealth of knowledge and experience.  


I've noticed that as a lot of our children have gotten older, the older members post less (including myself).  But that is a good sign.  It means that we have gotten to a place where we don't need 24/7 support to cope anymore.  But we are still here for the new ones!


Looking forward to hearing more from you!
