Hi automum. I know of an excellent website that provides on-line "befrienders" to parents with kids with special needs. The befrienders are parents of special needs kids themselves and trained in counselling. It's great for parents to know they can talk to someone who really knows what the parent is talking about from their OWN experience. I am one myself ;-) It's UK based but not exclusive to UK parents. The site is face2facenetwork.org.uk/ if anyone is interested.

I know how hard it can be for you as a parents. When I find out the name for my daughter's diagnosis, I went to yahoo group and look up the name and I found a parents group for me. http://groups.yahoo.com/search?query=Autism Maybe from this you might can find group that you can ask questions and get some answers. My group helped me lot of time when I couldnt get answers from doctors. Parents knew more and I was surprised to lear more from the parents who have the child with same problems with my daughter

In myspace there is a good chat system and lot of members are interested in that topic. Also did you check up at www.autism.com where you can get researched papers with lots of examples which may of some use particularly medication etc. Is your son having a counsellor? Psychiatrist who treats him? I understand the turmoil u R undergoing and try these
