No parents are ever prepared to hear that their children are anything but happy and healthy - thus, an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) diagnosis can be heart-shattering. You may be unsure of how to help your child or confused by the many conflicting treatment advice. You may also have heard that ASD is a terminal, lifelong condition, making you concerned that nothing you do will make any changes. While it is true that ASD is not something your child will 'grow out of', many treatments can help your child obtain new talents and overcome various developmental challenges. From government services, in-home behavioural therapy, and school-based programs, many assistances have been made available to fulfill your child's requirements and help them learn, grow, and thrive despite their circumstances.
