    Good day,

    I’m reading up on your website and I’m finding so much useful information. The reason for my contact, my best friend, has a almost 4 year old daughter and I think she is autistic.

    She makes no direction contact with anyone ( no one should touch her or even look at her, then she cries), she isn’t potty trained, she is always crying and covers her ears. I’ve spoken to my friend numerous times cause I can see both parents and child suffering. but they seemed to be in denial about the situation and would prefer to have their little girl watch TV all the time to keep her occupied.

    How I can help them? or even show them that there is something wrong, they refuse to take her to the doctor or pediatrician.

    I’m really hoping you can give me some advice as to how to handle this situation.

    Regards,
    Megan

    I have a son who is Byberger Autistic, he is turning 26 years old next month, but still innocent like a teenager. he is very intelligent, reads alot, but extremely lonely, he has no friends except for his siblings. I desperately would like to find out of any social groups in the norther suburbs which might exist where young adults can get together, make friends and feel comfortable with people like themselves.
