This post is especially important to readers from Ontario whose lives are affected by an ASD. I just received an e-news letter from Autism Ontario. The news letter had information about their new program called Spirale. Spirale is a website that parents of children with ASD, can go to for information on available services in the Province of Ontario. You can find out lots of things from recommended doctors with experience in the autism field, to various parent programs.
I'm glad that Autism Ontario continues to provide such great support and service. The website is fantastic and I can't wait to use it. Since Jacob was diagnosed with Asperger's a couple years ago, Autism Ontario has been a great source for information on our son's associated ASD. The new Spirale website will be a great resource for us and everyone.
You can visit the website at http://www.autismontario.com/spirale
In addition to the newsletter, when Jacob came home there was a package of information from the school's learning resource teacher, about upcoming autism workshops. The most interesting of which is a handout which reads "Celebrate World Autism Day with John Elder Robinson." John Elder Robinson was diagnosed with Asperger's at age 40. Since then he has written a New York Times best selling author. His book is titled "be different: Adventures of a Free Range Aspergian" John Elder Robinson will be appearing at the Hamilton Convention Centre on April 2ND, 2012 at 7:30PM.

WELCOME TO JIM'S AUTISM BLOG
Hi everyone and thanks for visiting our blog. My wife and I created this blog to chronicle our experience while raising a son with Asperger's syndrome. Since our son was diagnosed with an ASD at age 5, we've had a lot of questions. Lucky for us we have a great support network in place. And our blog gives us an opportunity to share what we've learned with our readers. We hope you find our blog informative and interesting. Thanks again for visiting.
