Hi all...ok, here I am on the third Mon. of the month...had a rough weekend with tantrums...has been a rough couple of months since school started & our little kindergartener has had a rough transition to a new class. But we have a doctor appointment on Fri. and I am excited to attend the "Southern Tier Autism Family Support Group" that is supposed to meet at a church in Hhds on the 3rd Mon. of the month at 7pm. So I'm at the church, very dark, deserted church , with no one to talk to & get ideas from for our doc appt. on Fri. Both contact numbers listed for this group in the CIDS fall newsletter have been disconnected, and I am in desperate need of some advice in the next few days. Anyone know anything about this group and how to contact them??? Thanks for any help. Kim

I am not aware of this group. The Corning area autism support group is known as START and typically meets the third/fourth Thursday of each month above the Corning Library. In November we are meeting on the 20th and the December meeting will most likely be on the 11th (holiday party for families- not an informational night).
You can contact either myself (email@example.com - robin) or Belinda vandright at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is a Horseheads group that meets I believe in the High School once a month. I think it is run by Kelly Squires, but that was two years ago and my info may not be current.

I never found a Horseheads autism group but I am ready to start one. I'm going to call our son's teacher & find out if he knows of one in Hhds. If not, I will start one. I don't feel so smart & educated about autism that I no longer need help & even if I ever get to that point, which I doubt I will , I will be willing to share with others who may feel as clueless as I once was. I don't see me making it to Corning every month. It's hard enough for me to get out of our house to get groceries. Our son is in Mick Cornachio's class at Big Flats. Anyone have a child there? Kim
