The information shared by individuals participating in the threaded discussions represents the opinion of those individuals and is not intended to be an expression or opinion of any person at the University of Massachusetts Medical School or the Shriver Center.

The threaded discussion is one component of The Aspergerís Connection website. The Aspergerís Connection was created to provide a place for consumers, family members, professionals, legislators and policy makers to share ideas, ask questions, take courses and engage in interactive discussions. The discussion section provides a forum for individuals to discuss issues with one another that affect persons with Aspergerís Syndrome or High Functioning Autism and their families. It is not intended to provide a place where specific diagnosis or treatment recommendations can be made, nor will individual, person specific advice be offered. We hope that users of the site will discuss issues that address broad based concerns and that can be helpful to the number of people who visit the site.

If you have questions or comments, please send an e-mail message to Ruth Smith
