Autism affects many people in the world each year, and there is still so much that we need to learn about it.  Many people raising a child with autism feel alone and they don’t know where to turn for assistance and guidance.  But no one has to be alone with their situation – there is help that can be provided for the family dealing with autism. Here are some tips to begin.

Find out about support groups in your area for people who are dealing with autism.  Getting together with other parents can help any family. You can express yourself and learn about how others are dealing with their issues as they arise.

If you find that there is no such group in your area – form one.  There are probably other parents who will be so relieved if you create a group where you can all share.

Start to get newsletters about autism and sign up for online materials and information. The more that you know and the more tips that you have at your disposal – the more prepared you’ll be for daily living and for things as they arise.

You don’t need to feel alone with autism – there is assistance out there. It’s just a matter of waking up to it and finding the advice that you need.
