Autism websites – as sent in by a parent of a child with autism


I had this response sent into this website by a parent which sounds extremely useful for other parents to know. So thanks Patricia Sarmiento! I will also add them to my weblinks as well.

As the mother of a special needs child – my son, James, has autism – I understand the unique challenges that parents, families and educators of these exceptional children face daily. Many days run smoothly, but let’s face it – some days are more of a struggle than others.

In honour of school being back in full swing, which always presents many changes to our children’s routines, I decided to create a list of some of the articles I’ve come across in the past few months that shed light on many of the ways we can support our special needs kids. I’m passing these resources on to you in the hopes that you’ll share them with your audience, too. I believe they’ll make a great addition to your site (especially if included here: http://aas123.org/dyslexia-and-send-weblinks/)!
