Review for Autism Society of America, Bethesda, MD, USA
Our son was diagnosed with autism in 2002, and since that time we have been getting very valuable information from the Autism Society. It has included very practical information for families handling life with an autistic family member. For example, information on potty training problems, autistic children wandering from home, issues on entering puberty, and autistic individuals encountering law enforcement. When we started reading the information when our son was only two, we got a picture of the realities that we would have to learn to manage over coming the years. The information was not very pleasant, but it was authentic informative that we needed, from a reliable, experienced, expert source.
The Autism Society of America is an invaluable resources to families caring for an autistic family member. Other organizations may focus on finding a cure in the future, but the Autism Society focuses the practicalities of managing life with autism right now. It's a unique and invaluable resource for families of autistic individuals.
