Part of what I'm hoping to accomplish with this site is to provide a good starting point for parents trying to learn more about autism, with information and links to a wide variety of resources – both on and offline. I've established a series of pages that will list and discuss some of these resources.
Blog, I believe, represent probably the single largest resource of current and ongoing information for parents of autistic children. Of course, finding a blog (or blogs) that help you personally can be a challenge. The sheer volume of blogs and diversity of perspectives and opinions can get to be overwhelming. I know that there are many, many excellent blogs on the subject of autism that I've not yet discovered that others read everyday, but I just don't have the time to seek them all out myself.
To help parents new to autism get a good start on finding autism blogs that may help them, I've set up two pages for links to blogs: Blogs by Autistics, and Blogs by Parents. If you know of a blog that you think should be listed here – or if you write one you'd like others to know about – please let me know.
Books: Even with everything available on-line, books remain an excellent source of information for parents. My intent for listing books is to provide a list of books that other parents or autistics especially like, and when possible a review of that book to help others understand what is good/bad about the book. I've set up a page, Autism Books, to provide that list. From this list, each book will link (eventually) to a review(s) of that book. I've started it off with a review of Some Kind of Genius I originally wrote last September. Again, please let me know of any books you think should be listed and if you have a review you would like posted here.
Other: I've also set up a page to list the various organizations related to Autism. I've not done any work on this page yet, mainly because I'm not really very familiar with the organizations or their missions. These organizations range from support of finding a cure to advocacy of autistic rights. Any suggestions on how this might best be formatted are greatly appreciated, as are recommendations for which organizations I should include.
