Resources for Autism Families - Contra Costa County
AS/NLD Parent Support Group
Started by a parent who saw the need for a forum through which parents could share resources, ask for support, and simply coalesce around the need we have for an understanding affinity group. The group is comprised of parents of teens or young adults with Aspergers Syndrome, High-Functioning Autism, Autism Spectrum Disorder, PDD-NOS, NLD, or similar conditions.
