Getting Help

Repost.  I had this posted on my old blog.  Since the response to this post, last week, I felt reposting this was necessary.  I’d be more than happy to link to other lists outside of Indiana, if people are willing to forward them, or put them in comments.

Finding the right resources is often difficult and overwhelming.  My wife and I have experienced times of complete frustration and exasperation.  So, when we find nuggets like Michael's List, a website where a lot of the information needed is consolidated in one place, we are very grateful.  Granted, our child doesn’t have autism, but many of the agencies that help autistic children often overlap and have programs that are helpful to my child.  If nothing else, they can point to other agencies that can lend a helping hand.  In a local meeting the other night, my wife met up with parents of other children who are transitioning from high school to the “real world”.  Unfortunately, the word didn’t get out to many of us of the programs available to help our children.  So, websites like the one listed above become a great place to find resources to help.

"Don't go around saying the world owes you a living. The world owes you nothing. It was here first." Mark Twain

Quote 2

From Marine Corps Chaplain Father Dennis O'Brien: "It is the soldier, not the poet who has given us freedom of speech. It is the soldier, not the reporter who has given us freedom of the press. It is the soldier, not the campus organizer who has given us the freedom to demonstrate. And it is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who gives the protester the right to burn the flag." found on: www.robreider.com
