I am a social worker and a mom of a beautiful autistic 9yr old son. He is happy most of the time but he still can have really bad days. I am talking about the kind of days that only other parents of autistic parents can understand. The meltdowns, the not eating, the struggle of not brushing their teeth are just a few things that can leave our children over simulated, emotional, explosive or many other autistic irritations. As a parent we need a time out in very intense autistic breakdown moment sometimes and that's OK. Wouldn't you like to have help or just a caring person to talk to that truly understands autism while you are taking care of your child's sensitive needs. I want to start that phone call. I want to start a 24/7 anonymous parent help line answered by other parents that have their on child with autism. If its not another parent it will be a professional that works with autism ready to give you hope, a listening ear and researched based resources. You don't have to go through this journey alone someone will always be there on the other end of the phone. If you are in the state of Alabama and would use this type of parent network helpline let me know. If you are in the state of Alabama and would like to help with this project please let me know.
