  1. dsmith, thanks for letting me know about another wonderful company. I love it's name, nonPareil. And I love that there's at least 5 years for them to grow and expand before my son may need them. :-)
  2. Hi all! I haven't been on the boards here for quite a while as my homeschooling days are mostly over (although I still do some teaching of my youngest asperger's son in the summer to augment his schooling). I get anxious regularly about what to do about high school and even more so about what he will be able to do and to maintain himself in a job. As I was researching high schools for him, I ran into a very interesting site for a business that claims its mission is to train and provide IT jobs for ASD folks. It doesn't sound wide spread just yet, but they say their mission is in the next 3 years to be a sustainable business in 10-12 regions in the US. Right now it's in 3 regions: Mid Atlantic, Midwest, and Southwest. The company's name is Specialisterne USA. If you go there, read about their logo of the Dandelion seed. It blew me away. (no pun intended :-) I would link to it, but I wasn't sure if that violated Susan's "nothing copied from other internet sites" rules. A google search of Specialisterne will get you there. You gotta know that it understands ASD kids/adults when it includes LEGO Mindstorms as a part of its training protocol. I cannot tell you how uplifted I feel knowing there is such a company out there, even if my son never is part of it. Jacqui in MO
  3. When someone pays you through Paypal, where exactly does the money go? Is Paypal able to take money from your bank account if there is a dispute from the buyer? I've seen some people write about how they take the money out of their paypal account asap to avoid Paypal taking those funds out if there is a dispute. How does that work? Does it work the same whether you use it here or on Ebay? I'm nervous about taking the plunge and selling some used homeschool items, and I have given away many, but there are a few nicer sets I feel I could recoup some of the cost and want to try to sell them. I just don't know if I understand Paypal well enough to do it though. Thanks for any input! Jacqui
  4. Hi Melissa, thought I'd say "Hi" to someone living in my general neck of the woods. I see by some of your posts that we both have 1st grade boys. We live in Arnold.

  6. This is what I needed to hear today. But may I ask, what is considered a "short well-organized expository paper"? (I guess I mean, how long should "short" be)
