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, the AutismOne Social Network and the AutismOne Store.



 

We urge you to log in on a regular basis and read the blogs and articles. 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.


 

Then write a blog, long or short, to express your thoughts or ask a question. I am looking forward to reading your opinions.


 

With my best regards,

A Little About Me: 

 Candyce Estave, Advocate and activist for children. Candyce Estave grew up in Casper, Wyoming and moved to California in 1985. She worked as a bartender, eventually moved into management, and along the way learned the finer points of business promotion and entertainment. In 2002, she met and married Eddie Estave, and they immediately started a family, being blessed with a son in 2003 and a daughter in 2005. At age 4, their son was diagnosed with autism, and Candyce sought help from the Autism Society of Santa Barbara. From the day she attended her first support group meeting, she vowed to help other families who were facing the same difficulty she had with locating and obtaining autism services. In short order, Candyce became ASASB’s North County Coordinator, regularly hosting support group meetings in her home, scheduling parent trainings, and building a network of supportive professionals. She organized ASASB’s North County Autism Awareness Fair from 2008-2012. In 2009, Candyce was appointed to the Board of Autism Society of Santa Barbara. Candyce is a member of Altrusa International, Inc. of the Central Coast, serving on their Board of Directors and also served on the Foundation Board. She is a tireless volunteer devoted to directing families in the way of advocacy for services in Santa Maria, Ca. and throughout Northern Santa Barbara County. From 2010-2013 Candyce served on the Board of Directors for an anti- bullying non-profit, also tutoring children in the classroom, where she quickly realized that 50% of children were sick, on pharmaceuticals and something had to be done. 

Why I am a Part of the AutismOne Community: 

 I want to learn autism pathology to help my child heal. I want to know and support, learn from others also affected by ASD.
