Hi and Welcome to Sparkpeople and our Autism, Aspergers, Sensory, Oh My! team. It is wonderful to have you as a part of the team. I look forward to getting to know you and support you in your healthy lifestyle journey! I love your SP page as it is very peaceful. I am a mom of five who has high functioning Aspergers, and 2 of my sons have it as well. So I understand. If there are specific ways in which we can encourage you, please let us know. See you on the team, Cathy (team leader)
