This is a new website that has been designed as an autism specific community resource. This information portal is where people who need help or want to offer solutions can come together and share ideas and discuss new strategies and approaches. The website also features several helpful sections for parents, relatives, teachers and carers involved in helping children affected by autism. Aspergated Wives is a great and friendly, female group, with cautious but minimal moderation and instant posting, which has shown to be an issue in other groups. A fairly young group it is growing rapidly with a wonderful list of resources and sage advice.
