Young Child

Families often struggle with obtaining and accepting an autism spectrum diagnosis during a child’s early years.  Getting an accurate diagnosis early is key to accessing resources, and starting intensive early intervention often lays the foundation for future success.  There is a great deal to learn, however autism programs at this age focus on parent education and family goals, as well as the young child.

Autism parents will often comment that they wish their young child with autism had come with an Operations ‘Manual’.  However every family will write their own unique ‘story,’ and no two are exactly the same.  Compiled in this booklet is basic information for caregivers of young children on the autism spectrum.  The booklet covers all of the essential information for beginning parents who are starting down their autism path- including clinical, insurance, school, and family life information.  As you uncover the layers to understand your child, make sure to visit our ‘Big Book About Me’.
