Finding an Autism Support Group

There are numerous support groups available for parents and families of children with autism. Some of the groups that I have had the most experience with are the following organizations.

Autism Society of America:
Main website:
Local groups:

Families for Early Autism Treatment (FEAT):
Main website:
Local groups: on the main website, scroll down on the left side of the page, and look under the heading "Other FEAT websites."

Autism Speaks:
Main website:
State resources:

Yahoo Groups (find an online support group):

Autism and PDD Support Network (a very active online support group):

Another way to find a local support group is to do an online search (such as with Google or Yahoo) for "autism support group YOUR LOCATION."
