New to Autism

This presentation is designed for parents whose children have recently been diagnosed with autism. It covers the basic characteristics of Autism Spectrum Disorders, how families integrate their feelings about having a child with a disability, and how to get started on a path to helping your family support your child. There will be time set aside for questions to be addressed.  

Autism Spectrum Disorders are currently being diagnosed in approximately 1 of every 59 children according to a 2018 study by the Center of Disease Control (CDC).  It has become the fastest growing developmental disability in the United States so knowing what programs, services and support are available for families is an important step on this journey. 

Note: This presentation is open to the community.
No childcare is available.
