About the Floortime video training series (quoted from the Web site): Parents of children with relating and communicating disorders, such as autism spectrum disorders, can now learn at home how to help their children master the basics of relating and communicating. Meant to supplement the child’s work with professionals, the Floortime DVD Training Series shows parents how to use the Floortime approach to help their child relate and communicate. The series was developed by acclaimed child development experts Stanley I. Greenspan MD and Serena Wieder, PhD, creators of the DIR® approach for children with autism and other special needs. The method, known more familiarly as Floortime, encourages parents to get down on the floor with their child, following his lead and natural interests in play, entering his world to help him connect with others.

Freecycle | Submitted by Maria Pfeifer 4/05/2007

If you go to the freecycle home page, you can find a freecycle group in your area. This is a group who would rather pass on items that they no longer want or need instead of sending it to the landfills. You can also post items that are needed. I have seen cribs, clothing, furniture, computers, TV's etc... that have been passed on from one person to someone else who is in need. Everything on this is FREE.
