Autism 101: Online Course 25
Parent and Family Support
Raising a child on the autism spectrum can be a challenge. Communication, understanding and support from family and friends can help tremendously. More and more individuals on the spectrum, parents and professionals are coming together to help one another through support groups. The groups are a vital resource for parents looking for answers to their many questions. Part of the mission of the Autism Society includes fostering such groups through local chapters. Your state agencies can also provide you with information on financial assistance, education, and respite.
