Autism Support Network Launches Enhanced Features, Adds Thousands of New Members Globally
Date:9/16/2009

FAIRFIELD, Conn., Sept. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Autism Support Network (ASN) today announced the launch of its enhanced free services available athttp://www.AutismSupportNetwork.com. Listed as one of the leading online autism support communities today, and growing rapidly, ASN connects families and individuals touched by autism spectrum disorder (ASD) with each other, provides support and insight, and acts as a resource guide for treatments, strategies and therapies.

The enhanced features of the community include a robust reference guide for autism-related services across the US, UK, Australia, Canada and many other countries; articles from leading autism experts, parents, and those with autism; listings of latest autism-related news, conferences and grants; and a variety of non-English autism resources for global reference. The centerpiece of the community is its free peer-to-peer support tools that allow members to connect and communicate with others seeking support and guidance to their autism-related concerns through groups, private messaging, blogs and chat.

"In just over the past year we have seen massive interaction with our community," said Brian Field, co-founder of Autism Support Network. "People from around the world have come to ASN to help each other and provide personal support. While parents with children who have autism, adults in relationships with those with ASD and those living with autism frequently feel isolated and alone, ours has become a place where all such people can freely come together and find common ground, appreciation and understanding -- for themselves and the ones they care about."

Today 1 in 150 children is diagnosed with autism, with a new case diagnosed every 20 minutes. It is the fastest-growing developmental disability in the United States
