"We organized two scientific seminars with leading scientists and got support from six green organizations. We broke a world record with the surfing protest circle of 992 people, gathering attention to our struggle. We also managed to bring 20,000 people to demonstrate at Rabin Square in Tel Aviv, who signed many petitions. And we had thousands of people attending our presentations all over the country, raising support and creating seeds for people in many local communities to join our cause."

Parents connecting with other parents can have a big positive impact, and email facilitates that connection. On the Asperger list, run by the Information Center for Online Resources and Services, Inc. (ICORS), parents and adults with autism spectrum disorders come together to share support and suggestions.

"The information, advice, and support my husband and I received on the Autism LISTSERV list starting in 1994 were invaluable, and a strong contributor to how well our daughter, a part of that community, is doing today,” says Karen Reznek, mother of Special Olympics World Games Triple Medalist Abby Reznek.
