A favor to ask: one of my buddies has a young son who was recently diagnosed with autism. His wife is a mental-health professional and is considering opening a daycare facility that would cater to the needs of children with autism (and possibly other similar conditions). In an attempt to find out if there would be interest in such a place, please leave a comment here or send me an e-mail. I will forward the responses to my friend so he can gauge the need & interest. This idea is still very much in the planning (dreaming) stage, but if there is enough demand, perhaps it can become a reality.
I’m no expert on autism – or daycare – but this sounds like a winner. I know that there are many children affected by what are broadly called “autism spectrum disorder,” and a daycare facility for these kids and their families seems like a good idea.
