Top 30 Autism Facebook Fan Pages, 2012Autism Awareness Month, celebrated every April, offers a chance for the world to stop and consider the gifts and challenges autism can present. But for parents raising a child with an autism spectrum disorder, autism is something to be carefully considered each and every day, all year long. Tracking down the right diagnosis and the best treatments, staying up-to-date on current research, and finding the most effective ways to advocate for your child can feel like a full-time job. And it can be difficult to keep things in perspective and find other parents with whom to swap stories and strategies and find support. That's why more and more parents with children on the spectrum are turning to Facebook fan pages to stay informed about autism and Asperger's and find communities that extend far beyond their own hometowns. This year Babble’s trusted panelists — all parents of kids on the spectrum — have rounded up 30 of the best Facebook pages for families going through similar experiences. We're confident you'll find considerable guidance and support in the pages we've listed here. And if you've discovered another autism-related Facebook page you think your fellow Babble readers might like to know about, please share it here — you may see it on next year’s list! - Amy Reiter
