    Hi!
    You have certainly taken a great deal of time and energy to search out and collect all of these resources! Autism Awareness is an important topic to discuss. I was a teacher, and I would spend hours trying to search out and find information for some of my students’ parents. It’s nice to have found your site where everything is all in one place. Thank you for sharing!
