Welcome

The Grandparent Autism Network informs grandparents about autism and the medical, educational, legal and social issues that affect their families, enabling them to share how they may improve the quality of life for their children and grandchildren. Activities include social events for grandparents and grandchildren and advocacy efforts to increase support for autism causes. Networking together, grandparents are a vital resource for autism ...and each other.

To help ease the stress and smooth the transition for you and your family, Autism Speaks has provided an array of tips and resources for everyone involved in the process, including students, parents, teachers and peers.  Go here for some good advice.
