Letter to the Editor

Writer seeks support group for Autism in Edgefield County

web posted May 7, 2008
Dear Editor:

My family and I have just started a journey that we were not prepared to start.  Our youngest child, our two year old son, has been diagnosed with Autism.

We have finally past the point of panic and he is making positive head way with the help of Babynet.  However, we do feel like we are all alone in the county.  We have discovered that there are support groups in Aiken, but with one child in 150 having autism we feel that a local group would be beneficial for those of us in Edgefield Co. that are taking this journey of Autism recovery.

There are so many questions that we can not answer about autism because we are new to it.  A network of families would make this more bearable for us.  We have questions about the needs that are child will have in school.  We would like to know what methods of treatment have had the most success in autistic children in our area.  A support group that has experienced parents might benefit all of us.

I ask that only parents of autistic children contact me.  We have had quite a few second hand referrals, but I would feel less intrusive with first hand contact with parents of autistics.

Fell free to contact me or my wife Cynthia @ 637.9552 before 8:30 in the evening

Michael Crim
