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, Ed Arranga Executive Director AutismOne.org

After spending way too long at university collecting degrees, I moved to the US from the UK. I'm now a mum to Tom, now 4, who was diagnosed with autism at 2 and wife to Jeff, an Air Force officer. We've been stationed all over the US and hoping to stay in Colorado for a while. We're an outdoorsy family and all enjoy skiing, hiking, fishing and Tom and I are learning to ice-skate.
After Tom's diagnosis with moderate-severe autism at age 2 I wasn't ready to accept such a dire prognosis. In 2 years he has achieved so much with our holistic approach to his health. He's verbal, potty-trained, social and healthy and the future is filled with hope.
Autism One has given me support, friends, resources and an outlet. I'm thrilled to be associated with people who genuinely care about our kids and want their futures to be bright and our own lives as parents to be better.
I love that as the Silent Auction Coordinator I can help fund raise for such an amazing cause.
