Autism isn't fun for our family and living in Georgia makes it worse so I'm still complaining and hoping to move out-of-state. The first link came out on 3/15/15 and looks at states based on whether they have an insurance mandate, ABA offered in ACA/Obamacare or ABA for Medicaid. That's a start but you've got to read the small print as there are a lot of exceptions to the insurance coverage.

I'm starting to think my son might have ODD. He is very argumentative and defiant. He also doesn't listen and is very rude and disrespectful. I don't know is this is just a sign of autism, ODD or just being 5.

Our son is a pretty good eater and has never done this. He mouthed things a little at about 2. What causes this? We have to hide our paper towels. He became very upset and asked us for paper towels and wipes.

I don't want to bring his blanket out everywhere, it's something he sleeps with every night. And while Mickey calms him, I can't always get a video on my phone for him to watch. It's so hard to help him get through his public meltdowns when I just don't know what to do. I end up leaving wherever I am, and most of the time, I'm in the car crying. Crying for him, for myself, and for the whole… read more

My son has never slept alone. Before he was even 1 years old he had to sleep in my bed next to me. He hated his crib. Is this some kind of separation anxiety? I need him to sleep alone. I cannot continue to share a bed with him. Were moving soon into another 1 bedroom apt and this time I decided he will have the bedroom and I bought myself a futon. But before I spend money fixing it up I want to know how I will get him to sleep in there alone.… read more

We are moving to Michigan (Livingston, Oakland or Genesee counties) and are trying to find the right school for our 11 year old son. He has an IEP and he needs a small, self contained classroom. Can anyone give us some recommendations on public schools that they have 1st hand knowledge of? Thank you.
