Let me extend to you my personal welcome to our AutismOne Social Network. AutismOne is now the “one-stop-shopping center” for information about autism. We have the annual conference in Chicago, AutismOne radio, the Elizabeth Birt Center for Autism Law and Advocacy and now the AutismOne Social Network (and more to come).
I notice that you’ve not made any entries into your profile. Remember, this is a social network. Part of the function of a social network is to meet and interact with others who have common interests. Of course autism is a common interest. But there is more than that. Individuals like to know about a person before becoming a “friend.” That’s where the profile comes in. So whenever you can find the time, please fill in some of the entries of your profile. To do that just click on “My User Menu” next to the Welcome area on the right. From the resulting menu click on “Edit My Profile” and you will be in business.
Helping you interact with others is one of the many things we can do for you. Now here’s something you can do for us. Log in on a regular basis and read the blogs and articles then write a blog yourself. It can be on any subject of interest to you, preferably with some relevance to autism but not necessarily. It can be short or long, whatever it takes for you to express your thoughts. If you have a question then ask it in a blog--people read then they respond. If you see something with which you agree or disagree then please add a comment with your thoughts. This is an open community designed to help and support. We like to hear all sides.
I am looking forward to reading your opinions in future blogs and/or articles.
With my best regards
Will Price, CFO

I wanted to welcome you to the Autism One.
By becoming an active participant you can support and inspire others. Your sharing experience can lift other parents to help them move forward on this path. Autism can be challenging and puzzling. You can make a difference; together we can effectively resolve issues in a collaborative manner by addressing questions and providing feedback.
My son Jordan has made remarkable progress so please don’t ever give up hope!
Feel free to share your thoughts, stories and wisdom for we are all in this together.
To quote, Brandi Snyder: “To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.”

A Little About Me: 

Ben was not only meeting all of his milestones but surpassing them until he was 366 days old, what happened? Why is it that more than one doctors that examined him told me they could not rule out vaccines as the cause of his autism that was diagnosed at 18 months. Why is it that when asked if vaccines are safe the pediatrician said there is "nothing to worry about" and yet one of the vaccines my son received one day after his first birthday was taken off the market a couple of weeks later and on November 4th Merck notified the Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) that ProQuad has had two deaths attributed to the vaccine. (VAERS ID 331196 & 331194) Why is it that autism is hitting one out of every 110 children when 20 years ago it was nearly unheard of?

Why autism? Why my son? Why were the last words my son spoke for nearly a year, "Me miss daddy" as he screamed and convulsed in a fever the night of his 8 vaccines? Why didn't anyone tell me this could happen?

It's a million to one shot right? About the same as getting hit by lightening. So let me ask you, would you put your year old toddler in the middle of a field during a thunderstorm? It's safe right?

My son received a brain injury due to a reaction to a vaccine(s) and as a result of that injury he developed characteristics of autism. There is no one in his family tree that has autism or anything like it. Why not send someone to my house, to the houses of the other tens of thousands of parents with similar stories and ask us why? Please dear God CDC, NIH, ask me why, ask all of us.

Goals: 
Get my son back.
