I'm a computer science student's who's never done any research on ASD or directly interacted with families who have a child on the spectrum prior to this project. There are many things I don't know in regards to ASD; that's why I'm here to ask if anyone would be willing to offer up some of their time to talk to me about their experiences with raising a child who as Autism. Any information on this topic would be extremely enlightening and helpful to me.
