And I will have to disagree with jacksonsmom. ACCKIDS was started exactly because a number of parents found the NODCC organization to be unduly expensive in their events, to be in part a Schillmoller personality cult, and not to be that helpful. Initially, I found some of their information to be useful, but as an ongoing source of any kind of support, IMO they SUCKED.
Most of the real parents of disabled kids I know out here in the real world cannot begin to afford the high costs of their events, and I learned NOTHING at the last one we attended, which we only went to because it was close enough to our home to not need a room or expensive transportation. As a parent who also has developmental issues, plus is a member of a religious minority group I also found that list and its parent organization to be derogatory and insensitive in both arenas.
