TASK was created by me, Lori, a mother of an autistic child. I live in rural Northwest Tennessee, where there is no support group available for parents of autistic children. The services my son receives are excellent, but I have found it difficult to network with other parents and to find resources. Since receiving my son's diagnosis in 2002, I have spent many hours scouring the Internet looking for information, and I have compiled much of what I have found here in order to help other parents, especially those new to the world of autism.
There are many, many links here to resources, therapies, and information on autism (including checklists for the signs of autism). Please feel free to browse TASK. It was designed for you, and I'm glad you're visiting my site.
If you have any suggestions, comments, or problems with links, please feel free to e-mail me.
The Speech and Communication section is still Under Construction. Please feel free to browse the section, but keep checking back, as I will be adding new Speech/Communication therapies in the upcoming weeks, including:
*Sensory Integration Therapy (how it affects speech)
*Oral Motor Exercise
*Videos, Activites, and Books that Encourage Speech
NOTE: The information contained on the pages of TASK are for informational purposes only. TASK does not endorse any particular therapy, organization, or professional, but is, rather, informing site visitors of the existence of such therapies, organizations, and professionals.
This site is UNDER CONSTRUCTION! I'll be adding new sites and information in the following days, so feel free to check back!!
