Resource Links

The following is a list of resource links of interest to our community.


The Staples

These sites are the best in the country for finding information regarding Autism.

Autism Resources by J. M. Wobus, to my knowledge this site was the first and has always been excellent if not the best jumping off point for information on the WWW.

AutismLink provides resource lists by state, news updates, and discussion forums and chat rooms. This site started here in PA but has grown to cover the country.

Center for Disease Control and Prevention is the best US Government resource and has finally come up to speed.

Center for the Study of Autism provides a wide variety of information and links.
