Columbia University Collecting Autism Life Stories

I just saw some interesting information in The Coffee Klatch (#tck) Twitter stream and I wanted to share it with you. Columbia University is collecting autism life stories from parents of children with autism. Here is an excerpt from their call for stories:

The goal of this project is to gain a better understanding of the road to diagnosis. Parents have different experiences and observations of their child’s development and they have different personal resources with which they access care and services. Parents also differ in the type and extent of their support networks and social relations. And finally parents make different decisions in their quest for obtaining the right diagnosis and care for their child. We are eager to hear about how these factors affected your experience and your child’s experience with autism.

If you’d like to share your story, head on over to the Columbia University Understanding Autism page.
