Andy loves his trampoline that Grandma Ingrid and Grandpa Chet got him for Christmas. He learned to jump just 2 months ago and we can't get him to stop (we really don't want him to stop).
Where to start if you suspect your child might have signs of Autism?
Start with your Pediatrician (they should know the basic signs to look for)
Get a referral to a Psychologist (Our son needed a psychological evaluation and diagnosis to receive services)
If you have a Reginal Center contact them right away to get an appointment
Contact your local support group (can be found on Google or any search engine)They have many resources and can supply you with a lot of help
Go to a DAN Conference (there are so many parents there ready to lend a helping hand)They have financial services available (Fall Conferences on the West Coast; Spring on the East Coast)
Research ABA programs in your area and get your name on the list as soon as possible (waiting lists can be long)
The most important thing is: YOU ARE NOT ALONE!!!!
