The autism-physio is a list that started up for the specific purpose of sharing information and discussing various physiological/metabolic/genetic theories about autism and possible interventions based on those theories. I know that a certain amount of this sort of thing goes on on other lists; I thought it might be useful to create a space dedicated to it.
As lists go, it has been relatively quiet. There are about 70 subscribers at the moment.
If anyone here is interested, you can join by sending the command subscribe autism-physio (firstname lastname) to listserv@maelstrom.stjohns.edu

Our-Kids is a "Family" of parents, caregivers and others who are working with children with physical and/or mental disabilities and delays. We call the list "Our-Kids." While it isn't exactingly descriptive, it avoids the pitfalls of labeling our kids anything but what they most certainly are: The wonderful little people in our lives.
The Our-Kids list consist of over 800 people representing children of varying diagnosis; everything from indefinite developmental delays and sensory integration problems, to cerebral palsy, to rare genetic disorders. Over 35 countries are represented on the list now.
Here we can discuss our children's accomplishments and defeats, knowing that the audience includes others who know what we are going through. We can also get some idea of how others address specific problems/concerns with feeding, learning, schools, medical resources, techniques and equipment, as well as describing the problems to friends and family or just coping.
A few professionals, organizations and therapists also monitor and contribute to the list.
This list is not for the canvassing of any particular religious or political ideals nor is it a forum to debate for/against abortion or euthanasia. In fact, the list is not for debate whatsoever. The sole purpose of this list is for support and information for ourselves and our kids.
