WELCOME TO BBB AUTISM SUPPORT NETWORK
Welcome to our happy group!
I'd like to take some time to tell you a little about us.
BBB Autism encompasses many things, firstly a
website that is packed with tons of information about autism spectrum disorders
(ASD) a.k.a. pervasive developmental disorder (PDD), related disorders, school issues, therapies, communication, international conferences and more! We have over 2,000
links to information related to ASD.
BBB Autism is also about people and support. The Support Network side includes our message board and many other club features. You can find our photo albums from that page, FAQs, greeting cards, calendar, guest book and more! All totally free!
Many of us attend workshops and conferences from all
over the world. Don't be surprised to find summaries from these events
notes from the 2001 DAN! conference starting here. (Many thanks to Karen for
We also have a great e-newsletter. This is a twice monthly publication that deals with all sorts of issues centering around ASD. You can take a look at our past issues here. Please note that although we haven't been able to offer the E-News in some time, we will be back in business soon!
Some examples of back issues are:
|Gifts for the Child with ASD|
|How to Enjoy Disney World|
|Parent and Grandparent Pioneers of 2002|
|Everyday Tips (parts 1, 2, and 3)|
|De Mystifying the GFCF Diet|
If you'd like to subscribe, unsubscribe or order back issues, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure to email us with your ideas for issues as well! Issues are available in HTML, PDF or plain text.
Another feature unique to BBB Autism is the BBB Guide. Guides are simply shared strategies from fellow-parents. Topics include:
|Large Family Gatherings|
|How to Advocate|
|Pros and Cons of Telling Your Child of His/Her Diagnosis|
These Guides are available in book form only. You can preview, purchase the book or download at Lulu.
We offer dozens of printable articles about ASD. Check out our PDF files here.
Is there anything you'd like to see in the future? We are interested in any suggestions or ideas you might have.
The BBB Autism Support Community's managing staff includes:
BBB Autism has a new off-shoot fee-for-service called BBB Autism at Home. Parents and professionals located in York Region, Ontario can benefit from one: one help in a variety of ASD topics. We also provide workshops. *
BBB Autism has 2 beginners guides to ASD for those with a new diagnosis available free online. Other documents are already or about to be published by Lulu.com.
Wow, when it is all written down like that, it seems a lot, and I guess it is. We are basically volunteer parents helping each other by giving support, information...and sounding boards. We aren't professionals, but our hearts are huge and we are a wealth of knowledge for each other.
The parents here are amazing and I am honored to call them among my personal friends!
Please check us out, membership is totally free, located in MSN Groups. Although we are based in York Region, we welcome people from all over the world. We have members from the United States, Australia, England, Germany and more. Our 'kids' range in age from 2 to 33 and they are all over the spectrum!
We hope to meet you soon!
