  • A Parent’s Guide to Research

    0.00 2.50
    Understanding a complex spectrum disorder like autism is difficult enough in a purely academic setting. Yet when parents learn of their child’s autism diagnosis, they are tasked with educating themselves about autism and the wide range of treatment options available.  Research can play a critical role in that education. That is why we created A Parent’s Guide to Research, a basic primer on autism research.

  • Navigating the Special Education System

    0.00 2.50
    More autistic children are attending public school than ever before. Many teachers, administrators, and school support staff lack the background and training to meet the unique needs of autistic students. It falls to the parents to make sure that their child’s challenges, whether with social interactions, communication, or behavior, are addressed with research-based interventions within the school setting. To assure this, parents must have a basic understanding of special education services, their child’s rights, and their own.

  • A Guide for Transition to Adulthood

    0.00 2.50
    Adulthood represents a time in one’s life where there are increased levels of independence, choice, and personal control. These are all qualities that can and should be part of any autistic adult’s life. For many young autistic people and their families, the transition to adulthood is a daunting one, marked by significant changes in available services. Proper planning can ease this difficult transition, however, and ensure that all autistic individuals build the skills and establish the supports that will allow them to take advantage of all that adulthood has to offer.

  • A Parent’s Guide to Assessment

    0.00 2.50
    The formal assessment process can be a daunting experience for parents of children newly diagnosed with autism. The professionals who conduct assessments often rely on objective measures that use technical language around “deficit performance” or what your child cannot do. Rarely do they explain outcomes in terms that parents can use to set goals for their children. A Parent’s Guide to Assessment is intended to remove the mystery surrounding assessment and provide the tools to help parents better understand the process and utilize assessment outcomes to improve services and interventions for their children.
