I am so close to getting funds for various autism centers for autistic adults. One of my 3 daughters is autistic. She will be 20 years old on Friday. I would like to hear from people with autistic adults to hear what your needs are. Please write me.

I am Carol Shikany. My 19-year-old daughter, Tanya, has autism. I have 2 ENORMOUS REASONS for attending the AutismOne Conference that may be of high interested to you:
1st, I am inviting you to consider being part of the WHOLE HEARTED THRIVAL CENTER FOR AUTISM=A place to help Adults with autism THRIVE IN THEIR LIFE FOR A LIFETIME. I am attending the conference to connect with others who are like-minded and want to join their expertise with the center/centers. The plan is to have several of these centers around the country. We want it to be an amazing (physical) hub, focusing primarily on young adults who have autism; helping them to thrive in the community and in Life. We are now in the process of gathering the needs, wants and desires of the young autistic adult; creating these fabulous centers primarily for them and secondary for their families and caregivers. The WHOLE HEARTED thrival center strives to be a loving center to excel in meeting their needs, wants, and desires in the most beneficial,, successful and harmonious way. I am open to many areas of needs and desires that the autistic adult would like to have in their center. Below is the list of the possibilities we are developing and I am hoping the conference will add and help it come to fruition in the most amazing ways:

• Community housing/ a place to productively live together for autistic adults
• Franchisable facility prototypes around country
• Equine therapy and stables
• Labyrinth, meditation and reading library area
• Group home center outside and within the centers
• Franchised entities connected to each
• Sibling counseling/family outings
• Recreational facility connected to each for families (bowling, Ping-Pong, pool tables, movies, gardening)
• "Thrivers" thrift store COOPERATIVE to work and create art
• Music area, instruments singing and dancing, stage for plays
• Docu-drama movie on autism/produce/direct/distribute
• Their own Website of wants and wishes/with their own webinar productions
• Kiosks of specialist and other specialties
• Computer learning lab
• Cooking and nutrition
• Dynamic Website about center
• Dynamic Website for the autistic person as primary audience to use for their own needs
2nd Enormous reason for attending the Conference is sharing the great success that MaxGXL supplement is giving my 19-year-old autistic daughter, Tanya, on a daily basis. I am taking it as well. The benefits have been super for both of us! I encourage you to listen to a recent recording of a tele-seminar regarding this supplement as discussed by Dr. Allen.
Log on to: http://budurl.com/BrainBreakthrough Dr. Allen explains the benefits of glutathione with autism spectrum disorders, Aspergers syndrome and other brain disorders. Dr. Allen is an international researcher and practitioner in natural health and nutrition and has been in practice for more than 30 years. After receiving her doctorate in nutrition, Dr. Allen further trained in neurokinesiology and brain-stimulation techniques. She is recognized for her practical approach to health regarding natural and alternative methods of stimulating permanent changes in the brain as a result of dyslexia, ADD, autism, Aspergers syndrome, learning disabilities, academic and behavioral issues, and brain injuries.

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.”

I have a 3 daughters. My 19 year old daughter has autism and she just went into adult foster care on January 2nd, 2010.
Now I am gearing up for creating an amazing center called the Autism Thrival Center. We have HUGE plans for this and to make several arounf the country. We want it to be an amazing (physical) hub focusing on young adults who have autism to thrive in the community.
We are now in the process of gathering the needs and wants of the young autistic adult to create a fabulous center for them primarily and their families and caregivers, secondary, to get their needs and wants in a large place to go to for answers... and if we don't have it we will develop it, from art creativity and selling, thrift coop store, kiosks of information, athletics, game rooms, theatres, website of opportunities, job and career help, personal commercial made, documentaries and so much more. I am open for all your suggested needs that all young adults with autism would like to have at their center
