I need help learning about autism

Here are some excellent sites that I have pre-screened that will tell you all about autism: how to identify it, the "treatments" used, such as Early Intervention and Applied Behavioral Analysis.  Many of these sites will lead you to other sites to others to others, etc.  These are just some to start with.
*Please note that these websites are not Christian-based.

I really need some Christianity in my life!
