Hi, I'm new :D Okay, I got that out of the way. I was pointed to this sight recently, and I love it. I am a stay-at-home Dad, and my 4-year-old son Michael has been diagnosed with "pervasive development disorder," but after checking out this sight, I'm pretty sure he'll be diagnosed with Asperger's in the future. I'm naturally going through a lot of different emotions, and fighting off the urge to play the "I'm a bad parent" card. Are there places on this sight with similar parents discussing similar issues? Just figured I'd ask here, since this sight can be a bit overwhelming to newbies such as myself.
