I think I have mentioned before that my DD has a diagnosis of PDD-NOS. That means she has some traits on the autism spectrum without having enough to be typical of autism or asperger's. She is very high functioning. Anyway, she was in regular pre K program this past school year but spent an hour a day in a special class at a school called John Muir. They have the only early intervention program for pre school aged kids in the city and really need a play structure. Please vote for this project on the pepsi site. You an vote once a day for the month of July. I think you'll find there are many other worthy causes to use your other four votes on. The teacher of this class is such a great person. She cares so much for the kids and goes above and beyond what the school probably expects from her.

just check out muirautismplayproject dot com and vote everyday! Right now we are 38th most popular and we need to be in the top 15.

Best of luck - my father and I are both on the autistic spectrum so I will definitely go and vote (if I can from overseas).

My SIL works with children with autism in mainstream schools doing early intervention programmes. I know my life would have been considerably better with the help that these programmes give children so they need to be supported as much as possible.

Thanks! Yes I think you can vote from overseas because it doesn't ask for your address or anything.
Pandora, I know. There was nothing like this program in the S.F. school district 15 to 20 years ago.

innerkitten, I think this is a great project. My son is currently in EI for speech delay. I'd like to vote and went to pepsi.com but I can't seem to find your cause. Please help! I'd be happy to vote!

Thanks to those of you that are voting! You can vote once a day. So please continue to if you can. We are only at number 30 right now. Briefly we had made it to 29 yesterday. But we have to be in the top 15 by July 31st to win.
