Review for Autism Connection of Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh, PA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My son was diagnosed with autism at the age of one, and at the time, neither my wife nor I had any knowledge of autism or experience with raising a child on the spectrum. ABOARD played and plays a huge part in every aspect of our lives, with expertise and experience in all facets of autism and raising an autistic child. It's resources are deep and the staff and supporters are mostly all parents of autistic and special needs children. I highly recommend this organization and the support it gives to families like ours who seek to provide the best upbringing for autistic children.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

My day to day life in raising my five year old autistic son, from learning about the biomedical research to getting assistance in finding proper preschool and elementary school education for my son, to finding other local families who are going through similar situations like we are going through. Also explored the financial planning needed for raising a child on the spectrum.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Enlarge its scope to all areas of the nation; it serves Pennsylvania beautifully and it would be a great service to autistic families nationwide.
