Trusted Autism Organizations
We recommend starting with trusted organizations like the Autism Society of America, Autism Speaks, Autism Research Institute, and The National Alliance on Mental Illness. These organizations offer reliable information about diagnoses, treatment options, research updates, and more. They also provide access to support groups and other valuable resources to help guide you through every step of your loved one’s journey with autism.
Online Resource Tools
In addition to these trusted organizations, there are many great online resources specifically focused on helping parents find the information and support they need. Some great examples include Parents of Autistic Children (POAC), Autism Parenting Magazine, Autism Research News, and the Autism Research Institute’s online collection of articles, research papers, and books.
Educational Resources for Children and Teens
Educational resources become essential to their everyday lives as their child ages. Whether you are looking for special education programs or want to find reading materials that they can relate to, many online tools are available to help you. Some great examples include First Book, Reading Rockets, Readability Formulas, and Teaching Textbooks.
Supportive Communities and Support Groups
No matter what stage of your journey, it is crucial to find a supportive community that can help guide you through every step. Whether you need advice from parents who have been in your shoes, support from mental health professionals, or simply a place to connect with other families going through similar experiences, many great communities can help.
