  Hello there all!  My name is Melody Averett.  I live in Logansport, Louisiana with my husband and 5 year old boy with Autism.  His name is Cade and he is the light of our lives!  We struggle daily with discipline, communication, and TONS of other things!  Looking for parents struggling with similiar problems.  I am a student int he Occupational therapy Assistant program near where I live.  Any and all advice would be appreciated!  He likes to ride in the car for hours on end, tear paper, loves to put plastic in his mouth!  HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!

     I have tried Son-Rise Program, ABA, Neurodevelopmental Therapy, and a few others; I feel I haven't been able to get that one therapy that will help!
