When your child is diagnosed on the autism spectrum, it’s common to feel completely overwhelmed. There’s no “GPS’ that will take you on a direct course of action…no single destination to aim towards. Likewise, if you are an educator, one way of teaching isn’t going to work from one autistic student to the next. Though there are many common characteristics, each child on the spectrum is unique.
So where do we find the people, programs and services that will fit the needs of our child? There are many great resources available but how do you track them down? We must become adept at researching, curating, and networking to find the hidden gems that will make all the difference in the world for our children.

We try to make the drive easier through our curated A-List of autism resources. Here you’ll find:
- Parent, teen and children’s books
- Blogs and podcasts worth following for inspiration, ideas and support
- Awesome apps, products and services
