Lucas was diagnosed as being on the Autism Spectrum on Tuesday and since then I have spent hours looking for resources to help me understand Autism and how best to help him. I came across some free resources offered by Autism Speaks.
One is a 100 Day Kit to help families make the best use of the first 100 days after their children are diagnosed with Autism. It is downloadable or, if your child has been diagnosed in the past six months, can be mailed to your home or picked up from a local FedEx Office location. The second resource is an Asperger Syndrome and High Functioning Autism Tool Kit. Both resources are FREE.
If you know of any other resources I’d love to hear about them :)
