Ask Reading Kingdom: What can parents of newly diagnosed children on the autism spectrum do to get the best possible resources for their child?

  1. Give yourself some time to deal with the diagnosis and to find the best possible services for your child.
  2. Reach out to other families.
  3. Limit the services you and your child receive so as not to overwhelm you or your child.
  4. Do things for yourself that help support your health and vitality.  You have to take care of yourself so that you can be there for your child.
  5. When it comes to education, focus on literacy: Reading is key to a successful life in our world.
