Forum for Autism
This family support group started 15 years ago, when professional help and understanding of autism was hard to find. It has evolved to connect autism-affected families to others in the same area, and to help moms, dads, siblings, and extended family learn to interact with their autistic loved ones. The group also maintains a database of knowledgeable doctors and professionals, as well as a library of autism-related resources. The library is located in Colaba, but meetings can be organized anywhere in Mumbai or Navi Mumbai, depending on families’ needs. A tip from us: If no one picks up the phone, send an email, which seems to elicit a prompter reply.
