Raising a child with an autism spectrum disorder can be immensely rewarding. It can also, at times, feel lonely. You might find yourself wondering, Is anyone else going through the same things I'm going through? And if so, how do they cope? Parsing - or even keeping up with - the latest research into symptoms, diagnosis, treatments, and possible causes can be difficult, and you may be itching to vent your feelings about the way the spectrum disorders are represented in the media. Where can you go to find support, community, and clear, accurate information?
Increasingly, parents are turning to Facebook fan pages. We at Babble have rounded up 30 of the best pages for families with children on the spectrum. We hope you'll find lots here to help you navigate the challenges and joys of raising a child with an ASD.
If by some chance your favorite page isn't included here, please let us and your fellow Babble readers know by nominating it yourself. - Amy Reiter
