December 16 2006 Autism Spectrum Disorders Newsletter
Sorry for the delay in getting out a newsletter thus far this month. We finished school yesterday and now kids are home for almost three weeks. I have not been online much this week due to school programs, meetings and errands.
Now that we are home and therapy is in the home for Floor Time and Feeding I will be able to post articles more often. I am currently doing some research into the "not in my backyard" issues that group homes face with their neighborhoods.
People magazine had an article on a family here in California where the parents got the kids interested in music so they could fit in at school and now they have formed a band. Their website is http://www.jetfuelonly.com
