This is for all of you people in the Central Florida area that are considering enrolling your kids with ASD in Transform your life coaching in Altamonte Springs FL. For those of you that have heard about the company and know about Paula Breeden who is running it, think twice before enrolling your kids there. Paula Breeden is a scam artist and a liar, and is more interested in making money rather than helping your kids with ASD. Whatever you decide to do is your decision, but I would recommend you enrolling your kids with UCF CARD in Orlando instead of with her. You can save your money a whole lot worth it that way.

I lost al respect for this company when they deleted a negative review I posted about a company they have listed as an option for services for autistic children. The company I was referring to had sent people to my home who went through my personal property and many other unprofessional actions. I feel that people should not be censored when discussing their experience of ABA people as these are people you allow into your home.
I also looked into how the money was spent from this company and compared to what this company brings in they give very little to support families of children with autism as they claim.

This is a very well-done resource for anyone seeking general information about autistic spectrum disorders, which are so varied in their symptoms that it's said every autistic child is different from the next, even when they have identical diagnoses.

The site takes a good deal of care to be easy to read without dumbing-down the facts, something that many other sites which discuss specialized topics could learn from. It's clearly aimed at parents seeking guidance and manages to be welcoming without being patronizing.

This is a very complex subject, made more so by the differences of opinions even amongst medical doctors and psychotherapists. It encompasses several different illnesses, making an individual set of symptoms almost impossible to classify, and as a result, a large number of those on the spectrum are regarded as "Not Otherwise Specified", a catch-all for many unique combinations of symptoms that can't be further defined. A clearly-written and sympathetic introduction is well worth promoting and supporting.

I have to say that this is an American site, so suggested resources are American too. Nevertheless the information here is well enough presented to make it useful to anyone.

Incidentally, I'm the second reviewer to review this site today but cross my heart, it's a sheer fluke. Naturally I hate coming in second (grin), but in this case I'm pleased to be able to draw a bit more attention to a worthwhile resource.

This site is very informative and helpful when working with children with autism. It gives a lot of general information about autism. It also gives information for parents about their parental rights. It talks about various scientifically recommended programs for treatment. They also do walks for autism. This is a very positive site.
