Today I felt like offering a number of RANDOM resources that may be useful to a variety of parents looking for RANDOM help. Here we go…

1. Here are some great bullying resources for you and your family: http://www.stopbullying.gov/, http://www.kidsturncentral.com/links/bullylinks.htm, http://www.adl.org/cyberbullying/, and http://www.cbsnews.com/2718-18559_162-1249.html.

2. Numbers for you or your family:

  • Teen crisis line: Always good to have a back-up if you or the family therapist is not available: http://www.kidshelpphone.ca/Teens/Home.aspx (1-800-668-6868)
  • Suicide Hotline: For any and all ages: (877) 727-4747
  • Los Angeles Rape and Battering Crisis Hotline — all ages: (310) 392-8381

3. Interested in special education law for your child? Check out: http://wrightslaw.com/

4. Organizations that may help with a diagnosis of Autism: http://www.autismspeaks.org/, http://www.lafeat.org/web/, http://www.semel.ucla.edu/autism, http://www.themiracleproject.org/.

5. Check out some organizations I think are worth donating to: Focus Fish (http://focusfish.com/), Camp Zoe (http://www.campzoe.org/), Los Angeles Youth Network (LAYN) (http://layn.org/), Hillside Family of Agencies (http://www.hillside.com/Donate.aspx), and Heifer International (http://www.heifer.org/).

I will continue to post ideas about resources in the future. Please note that these are recommendations and by no means am I personally making an endorsement or suggesting any type of effectiveness. Again, merely recommendations for your leisure.

Best wishes,

Dr. Stephanie
