There are sections for Facilitated and Augmentative Communication. There is a Organizational Spotlight and one would be National Family Caregivers Association.
You will see advertisements from special catalogs to order sensory products as well as where to buy wheelchairs, beds, special needs joggers and companies that supply diapers and under garments in all sizes and will send you a free sample.
The advertisements use the special needs kids as well as offer a toll free number and most have web addresses.
You can also fill in the card with the appropriate number to receive information in the mail. I have received information from various organizations all over the United States and Canada.
You will learn about seminars and conventions along with guest speakers and agendas. In each issue is Ask The Doctor, Role Models, Web site recommendations and my favorite is called Search and Respond.
Search and Respond is an opportunity for readers to exchange information about their experiences. You can access this feature now at their web site as well as faxing in your question or answer.
There is an outstanding library available through Exceptional Parent as well. The magazine sells for $4.50 on the stand and a subscription last time I checked is $36.00 per year.
This magazine is geared for us parents of kids with special needs and you can send in pictures of your kids and feel secure in knowing that you are not alone.
They are located at www.eparent.com or call 1-888-372-7368 and I believe they have the option of picking a charity that 10% of the amount will go to. For international customer service contact 1-201-634-6550.
Not only have I become more knowledgeable of the Autism Spectrum Disorder but thanks to Exceptional Parent magazine I have a clearer picture of other illnesses and disabilities as well.
An overall great addition to your family library.
