BronX Marks the Spot
For families in the Bronx (and those willing to travel to the Bronx) you can find a safe place to share your experiences and learn how others cope with an ASD diagnosis at Parents of A.N.G.E.L.S. A non-profit based out of the Bronx. Parents of A.N.G.E.L.S. was a Godsend for me after confirming my fear that my handsome five-year-old son had Autism. In existence since 1999 Parents of A.N.G.E.L.S. helps families with members on the spectrum network with other parents and professionals. Parents of A.N.G.E.L.S. holds monthly meetings that cover topics that a very prevalent to ASD families.
Their next meeting will be April 19 2007 with guest speaker Attorney Dean Bress who will discuss the latest Medicaid rules that started February 08, 2006. He will also speak with the group about Supplemental Needs Trust
