positives in our situations, learn as much as we can & above all SUPPORT one another through difficult times.
- AS Learning At Home

This list is only for those who curently homeschool or are SERIOUSLY considering homeschooling. There are other lists available to those who have Asperger's children in public school and that is a very different situation. This list is for support and encouragement -- sharing joys and frustrations of homeschooling our "special" children.

- Shadow Syndrome Kids
Do you have a child that has been diagnosed with mild forms of disorders like Asperger's
Syndrome,CAPD,SID,ADD, ADHD and others. Or does your child have a number of comorbid
syndromes making it difficult to understand what is going on with him/her. This list is intended for
parents of MILDLY affected children of varying syndromes/disorders who feel that many of the other email lists are too strong or do not give you the right support.
