Jumping In

For some time I've thought about getting the families touched by autism and living in and around Edina connected with each other.  And, today seemed to be the day to take the plunge!  So, starting with this blog here, and a Tumblr account (are they called accounts?), here I go.  Likely a Facebook group will follow, maybe a Google group.  The landscape of social networking is vast and multi-faceted so it may take a little while to sort out the best avenue. We will find out what is the most effective and efficient, hopefully including some face to face!
More about me to come, but for right now, I live in Edina and I am a parent to an 11-year-old boy with autism. I am interested in connecting families together and with services and ideas to better help us all put this "puzzle" together!  Please get in touch with me through a comment here, or email me with feedback, questions, or submissions.  Thanks for joining me on this journey.

    Great job, honest feelings and reactions are important - blog away

  3. Wonderful. No doubt this will help to connect other families who deal with the challenges of autism. Best of luck, my friend.

  4. So great that you are doing this.

  5. This is a great project, and I look forward to seeing it develop. You always seem to have the next piece of the puzzle! Thank you.
