Oklahoma City, Okla. (PRWEB) September 18, 2008
My Autism Network, LLC today announced the launch of its new membership website at http://www.myautismnetwork.com, which is targeted at families and caregivers caring for loved ones affected by Autism, Asperger's Syndrome and other Pervasive Development Disorders (PDD). MyAutismNetwork.com members will receive access to an expert autism forum where they can interact with Autism therapists plus other families and they will have access to other exclusive content including in-depth articles, comprehensive guides, reports, research briefs, video presentations, audio downloads and much more for a low monthly or annual fee.
Kelli Brooke, speech language pathologist and co-founder of MyAutismNetwork.com, said the goal of the membership is to provide families and caregivers with an online community where they can get help from experts with the daily challenges of Autism and Asperger's.
"Parents and caregivers often have many questions regarding parenting, disciplining, teaching and therapy for their loved one with Autism, "said Brooke. "The problem is they often do not have anyone they can go to on a daily basis and get the answers they need. Our goal with MyAutismNetwork.com is to give parents and caregivers a place to interact with experts and ask their questions and also to provide them with additional materials in the form of articles, videos and audios to support them."
MyAutismNetwork.com will offer members a broad range of topics each month relating to everyday needs. A few of the upcoming topics include toilet training, handling challenging behaviors, understanding standardized assessments, Autism and the holidays, preparing for outbursts, trying new foods, sexual education, car safety and much more.
Tara Renee, occupational therapist and MyAutismNetwork.com co-founder, said many families are confused by the differing opinions given to them by physicians, therapists and educators. She said many times families get so much advice that they do not know which path to follow.
"One of our goals with MyAutismNetwork.com is to help parents and families learn how to manage their child's programs and their network of doctors, therapists and educators to all be on the same plan," said Renee. "It is important for parents to remember that even if they do not consider themselves Autism experts, they are the expert when it comes to their child. No one else knows their child like they do."
