Our kids are getting older and issues more complex.  One issue for all parents is that of sexuality....its big for Autistic and neurotypical kids alike.  But, how do you deal with it as a parent of an Autistic child?  On Monday, September 15 you can come discuss and learn at a special meeting on Sexuality and the Autistic Child.  It will be presented by Holly Daniel Moore.
