Good afternoon!

I am looking to connect with other moms in the KC Metro Area who have children around age 12 that have PDD-NOS or Aspergers Syndrome

Well I am not in the KC metro area but I do have 2 AS/HFA kids. One is 12 (girl) and the other is 10(boy).

I wanted to say welcome and though I don't know of anyone in your area specifically, someone else here may. You are certainly welcome in our little online home. We come from nearly everywhere in the US anyway.

If you want to find something in your area you may want to get on the ASA website (autism society of america) and see if there is a chapter in your area.

Welcome to our little corner of the cyber world, Karyn!

Alas, I'm not in the KC area...although I lived in St. Louis for 6 years- so I'm, at least, familiar. :-) Currently, I live in Central Illinois-although I'm hoping that changes sometime next summer.

I'm Amy aka Manec93. I have three children, two on the spectrum. My oldest is a 9 (and a half according to him) year old boy, Dx'd with Asperger's. My youngest is a 6 year old girl, Dx'd with Autism. My neurotypical child is a 7 year old girl.

Hope to see you around more often~

Hello and welcome,


We have people here from all over, but I don't think any are from your area specifically.


You can find local support though. Does your school district or any of the neighboring districts have a SEPTA (Special Ed PTA)? That is often a tremendous resource for support and local contacts.

Hiya Karyn, welcome to the board.


I don't know if you will find *physical* neighbors on this board, but we're all one great big huge family anyways.
