    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    It is never easy to learn that someone you love has a serious health or developmental condition. But we can help by providing basic information about children with autism, autism symptoms and treatment, and how to get help.

    Learning all you can will ease your fear and confusion, and provide the tools you need to find the support that children with autism -- and you -- really need.
