State Groups & Sites

The sites listed on these pages are all area specific. On them, you can find out about support groups, curriculum fairs, the climate in the state, etc. I do not vouch for the accuracy of any of these boards, but they can be a good place to start your research. If a state has an * next to the name, I haven't been able to find a web page for them. If you know of any let me know and/or if you are from that state & have been considering doing a web page but aren't sure of a topic, you can always cover your own state. Until there are pages up for these states or if you don't find what you are looking for on your state pages, try Other Sites That List Support Groups.

I have added links to message boards & e-mail loops to the state group listings wherever I knew of any.
