I just wanted to share this great resource for families, in some respects, particularly those of you whose children are young. It’s a place where you can ask questions and get support by those who have probably gone through what you’re going through right now. The group is called My Autism Team and here is their website.
When my son was first diagnosed with epilepsy (before autism, though thankfully he’s outgrown that, knock on wood), one of the first things we got to do was talk to someone who was further along in the journey and therefore could not only answer some of our questions but, also understand what we were going through.
Support groups are one of the best resources you can have.
