Whether they’re looking to find practical advice on therapies, filter out misinformation, or just vent about a rough day, many parents of children with autism have found support in the Facebook community. Babble’s trusted panel has once again been tasked with narrowing down this year’s Top 30 Autism Facebook Fan Pages. This list includes pages created by advocacy organizations, autism professionals, bloggers (some of whom also appear on our Top 30 Autism Blogs), and much more. We’re confident you’ll see some of your favorites here (if not, be sure to nominate them in the comments for consideration on next year’s list!), but we also hope you’ll find new sources of information and advice. — Barbara Spindelsee the full list »

Why you’ll “like” it: Military families face unique challenges, from frequent relocations to a parent’s distant deployment, often in harm’s way. For those military families that include children with autism, the challenges are even greater. This site, which topped our list last year, offers a range of useful information and compassionate support, whether by letting readers know about helpful resources or providing direct assistance to community members seeking services where they are stationed. The page fosters a real sense of community by engaging readers with questions, whether related to the military (How do you explain autism to other military families?) or not (Are you concerned about adult services for when your child ages out of the educational system?). The group also maintains a consortium of 30 linked blogs, which won a spot on our top blogs list this year.
