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.
