Parent Online Support Group

This e-mail group is for parents, guardians or any family member who has a care-taking role of an individual with autism, Asperger’s Syndrome or PDD-NOS living in the State of Delaware. This will be a place to safely share your experiences and concerns. This group is set on private and only members can read and post to the group.

When it comes to participation in this group, please remember: Venting is healthy and something we all need to do it from time to time. Vent away if you must! However, bashing or slandering another member on the group for their choices in therapies, techniques or beliefs will not be allowed. We will warn anyone who violates this policy and remove them after a second incident.

Email attachments are not permitted in this group.

The email address for the group is: ASDSupportGroup@googlegroups.com.
