An autism diagnosis can be hard on siblings. Be sensitive to their needs as you work on getting intervention for your child w/ autism.
An autism diagnosis can be devastating for parents, but it is better to know early so that your child can get early intervention services.
Parents of kids w/ autism must remember not to blame themselves. Few risk factors for autism are preventable; there is no 1 cause.
Autism may seem like a new disorder, but it was first given a name in 1943. It is being diagnosed more frequently, and earlier, now.
Autism affects 1 in 88 newborns in the U.S. Research indicates infants w/ a sibling w/ autism are at 1 in 20 risk.http://ow.ly/aU1aO
