Not sure where to post this. Autism seems to be common amongst those with food allergies.

"Caring for your child with autism can be physically and emotionally demanding. Respite services provide families with temporary relief. While giving you a much-needed break, these services allow children and youth to participate in meaningful activities that will help them learn new skills and build relationships. Respite programs can take place in your home, at March break camps and through other community programs offered throughout the year.These services are available to children and youth with a diagnosis of autism until they turn 18."

I personally don't have any children with Autism, but I think is SUCH a wonderful program to offer to parents with autistic children. It's a lot more than just getting the kids out of your hair -- it's a genuine break from the stresses of assisting a child with special needs. What I find, oh so special, about the program is that your child's development and learning doesn't take a break while you are -- and they're having fun in the process.

I'll have to spread the word to my friend Amber . . .who DOES have a child with autism. Thanks for sharing!

Silver Nanoparticles seem like something you KNOW you would be allergic too, but oddly enough, it's a supplement.
