Another Valuable Website

When you start seeking help and information along the Internet Highway, there are many forks and turns to explore off the main road. I recently stumbled on a site called OASIS@MAAP (although the URL is, which is a convergence of two organizations: Online Asperger’s Syndrome Information and Support and Susan Moreno’s MAAP organization. The site “provides articles, educational resources, links to local, national and international support groups, sources of professional help, lists of camps and schools, conference information, recommended reading, and moderated support message boards…[in] addition to the annual conference, newsletter email and phone support provided by MAAP Services."

The site is well worth looking at, especially for young adults with social communications or autism spectrum disorders and their parents.

Pat, I just wanted to let you know how much I have enjoyed reading through you blog. I, too, have a 19 year old son who has NLD. He is in his first year of college and so we are experiencing many of the things you write about. I have a blog (found in my profile) but it's not specifically about him, but just life in general.
You sound like an amazing mother who is doing the best for your son. He sounds like an amazing young man too.
Thanks for sharing. I look forward to coming back and visiting often.

Thank you, Barbara. The more the merrier, at least in terms of finding ways to muddle through life!!
