Welcome to VSAN!

This is the homepage for VSAN or the Valley of the Sun Autism Network. It is a resource for parents of kids with autism who live in the Phoenix metro or its surrounding areas in Arizona. The purpose is to provide a central point of access for information on various topics of interest including doctors, co-op, meetings, forums, providers and therapist and ideas for living a healthy and toxic-free life.

Special thanks to Becky Favors, Cynthia Macluskie, Jennifer Lansky, Jennifer Lawrence and Marlene Kenyon for contributing valuable information to this web site.
