Let's make a sticky! Everyone post here with the terms and abbreviations they know, and meanings, therapy names and breif desscriptions, whatever you can think of, and I'll make a sort of an ASD 101 sticky.

Oh, also post here if there's something that you don't understand, that you'd like to see explained

I am a breastfeeding, cloth diapering, co-sleeping, no crying it out, baby wearing mama of 3 boys, one of which has autism. Meet my boys here (having technical difficulties with my website). My blogs are On Top of Mt. Laundry and The Cache Checkers.
