Are you the parent of a child who has been diagnosed with autism? Perhaps you are a grandparent, sibling, uncle or aunt of a child with autism. Quite possibly, you don’t have a diagnosis for your child yet but you have seen some red flags of autism and want to learn more. No matter which category you fit into, you desire direction about what to expect as a family living with autism. You are in need of tools that will help you cope with tantrums, sensory issues, quirks, lack of verbal communication, transitioning your child into adulthood, getting a diagnosis, and more. It is my hope that this series, Coping Skills for Families Living with Autism, will encourage and equip you through each daily experience as you do your best to parent your child on the spectrum.
To help me to encourage and equip you, I have asked several other bloggers to join me for this series. Not only has their initial response of “yes” wowed me, but I am amazed at the wonderful encouragement and helpful tips they each have included in their posts, each one written to reach families living with autism just like yours.
Throughout the series you will also be able to visit this page to find the newest post linked below, as well as any previous posts that you may have missed. Or feel free to check the blog each day to find the newest post at the top of the page.
