Words of Support for Parents of a Child with Autism

​​Children with autism are affected by many factors that will shape their future. Overall, the long-term outcomes of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) have been improving. In general, the sooner ASD is identified, the sooner appropriate intervention programs can begin.

While some children make significant developmental gains with early and intense intervention, some children may make slow progress depending on their intelligence, the severity of their ASD symptoms, and whether they have associated medical problems such as seizures or significant behavioral disorders.

The goal for all parents should be to help their child reach his or her fullest  potential with the help of all available resources.
