Does anyone know of the closest center for Autism outreach for children near paintsville, I am moving there and I have a two year old with Autism and need to find where the nearest place is where he can continue to get therapy for this, no rude comments please, this is an innocent child who has done nothing to the world ....

The program at the hospital is an ABA program. It is one on one so it is very expensive. It is a great program. I'm not sure that children receive many home services beyond first steps here.

Autism can be really tough to deal with, I feel for you. If you haven't yet, I would suggest you read The Way I See It, by Taylor Grandin. Grandin has high functioning autism and the book deals with practical advice of what parents can do to help autistic children based on how she was helped. It is way less theoretical than most books on the subject and actually discusses literal steps that can be done.

How/why do you spend so much time on the computer with endless entries that are only important to you when your child needs constant care/supervision? The center in prestonsburg cost 60,000.00 by the way. And as far as books are concerned,hell,I figured you had written about 20 on autism by now. Youre such an expert on EVERYTHING...

OKAY FIRST OFF PERSON IN STAFFORDSVILLE, CAN YOU STATE YOUR GIVEN AND FULL NAME ????
2ND OF ALL MY COMPUTER IS IN MY LIVING ROOM RIGHT WHERE MY CHILD IS SO THAT I CAN WATCH HIM IN HIS EVERY MOVE IF YOU MUST BE SO NOSEY
3RD OF ALL I DONT NEED TO KNOW THE COST OF WHAT ANYTHING IS BECAUSE MY SON IS WORTH EVERY PENNY
SO I SUGGEST YOU GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT BEFORE YOU GO MOUTHING OFF , LEAVE MY CHILD OUT OF ANY RUDE COMMENTS OR HOW I AM WITH MY CHILD , CHILDREN ARE INNOCENT AND SHOULD BE LEFT ALONE ...

I may not agree with what Angie posts. However, unless you have a child with autism or another disability, please do not be quick to judge. She is right this is about the child not her on this forum.

BY THE WAY I NEVER SAID I WAS AN EXPERT ON ANYTHING
WHAT ARE YOU SO OFFENDED BY ANYWAY WHO ARE YOU AND WHO PISSED IN YOUR WHEATIES , IM NOT AN EXPERT BUT I MAKE IT POINT TO LEARN ALL I CAN WHILE ON THIS EARTH , ITS WHAT WE HAVE BRAINS FOR TO FILL THEM WITH KNOWLEDGE ... LEARN FROM BOOKS, LEARN FROM THE BIBLE, LEARN FORM THE COMPUTER, LEARN FROM WRONG DOINGS, LEARN FROM YOUR PARENTS, LEARN FROM YOUR CHILDREN, LEARN FROM YOUR PEERS.. LEARN ANYTHING YOU CAN WHETHER IT HOW TO SKIN SOMETHING OR HOW TO FIX A PC ITS ALL ABOUT WHAT YOU CAN LEARN AND WHAT YOU WANT TO LEARN... HAVE YOU EVER PASSED THE MENSA BY THE WAY. DO YOU KNOW WHAT SAARC IS? DO YOU KNOW WHAT I AM EDUCATED, I DONT NEED TO APOLOGIZE FOR THAT ....

Thank you so very much you are an angel, i iwll write down your email addy and contact you, i think people like you are awesome.. It is hard having a son with Autism and I don't care what people want to say, my son, my daughters and i all have a chromosome disorder as well it is called trisomy 13 and monsomy five. it is genetic and in doing my genealodgy research i have also turned to medical genetics to try and find answers, my mother and aunt (biological not adopted) were born with open mouth birth defects and facial deformities, I had lazy eyes and lop ears and a maxillary over bite as a child, it was all fixed though, my mother and my aunt have had to live with their birth defects all their life, my grandmother had facial buds and several other members of the family have defects as well. you cannot help the way you are born and no one is perfect and God makes us all special. the syndrome we carry is called treacher collins and form what i know of it sometimes you may not even notice it in people and other times people carry the worst forms of it. i do not pitty myself or my kids nor do i want pitty but it is hard raising special needs kids and genealogy is my passion and it is my salvation second to God when it comes to dealing with things.

You know I met my grandmother when i was 15 because i was adopted out as a child and she asked me to find out about this enoch davis and these three tracks of land, she left kentucky with her parents when she was nine years old and has never been back, she has a gracious heart but not the best of education and she asked for my help and i promised I would help her, well it took me years to find out who Enoch davis really was because I kept looking for Enoch davis I had no clue he was really a fitzpatrick so anyway I have held true to my promise my grandmother knows very little about her kentucky roots and i have given her everything i have learned and in doing so i found a pride..... I tell you my paternal grandmother first got me interested , , oh i miss that woman i did not know her like someone would know their grandmother but i know she loved me dearly and you know people often ask me why do you do so much genealogy and i am not afraid to say my ancestors cannot hurt me, my ancestors cannot die on me, my ancestors cannot lie to me , my ancestors cannot do anything but tell me the story of their lives and make me proud of who i am and tell me a story of how i came to be, they can tell me about history and educate me on the way life really was.... I dont know why im getting off on this tangent i guess i want people to know i really am a good person and this whole land deal and my determination is because it is the difference between what is right and what is wrong and if the shoe were on the other foot bethel howes and them would be saying the same thing. she should be setting an example as one of the only two living grandaughters of enoch davis , not defrauding people... i guess people dont look into their childrens eyes anymore and realize there is a legacy being carried on from one generation to another, i guess they could give a damn less only if it means they have money to gain, not everyone just some people. well i better get off my soap box, I love those mountains down there and i have met some really wonderful people down there and i do believe there is still some good ole folks that believe in the way things should be, people like you thanks for your words about my son, it is truly a gift .....
