Sorry I am passionate on this topic and can’t tolerate this. Sorry you had such nasty neighbor.
Divine1966,
Your reply hit a bell for me. My 30 year son was just diagnosed last month with several diagnoses, including autism spectrum disorder. I am trying to find a parents support group to learn more about what I can do for him. Any suggestions?
Thanks
