  • Identify sources of treatment and support on and off base
  • Offer tips for dealing with some of the unique challenges Military life poses for Military dependent children with Autism and their families
  • Inform parents about their child’s educational rights and offer some practical strategies for success in the classroom
  • Provide a forum where Military parents of children with Autism can ask questions, share information and ideas, and lend mutual support

    I have some contact information for the Fort Myer, VA area and their Exceptional Family Member Program. I have heard that Miss Marsha O’Connor (forgive me if I’ve spelled it wrong) of the EFMP has great info and is a huge help. Her phone number is 703-696-3510
