My Child was Just Identified with an Autism Spectrum Disorder: Now What Do I Do?

Our friends over at the Virginia Autism Council shared this great online training course with us, and we wanted to get out the word for parents of children who have been newly diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. VCU developed the course, and it's online, self-paced and FREE. Here are some details from the course page, and the link to the course is below.

Course Overview

This course is designed to introduce families to the characteristics, needs and recommended services for young children with autism spectrum disorders. This course will provide a brief description of the defining characteristics of an autism spectrum disorder. The focus of this course, however, is on effective services, supports and strategies to be implemented.

Who Should Take This Course

This course is designed for parents who have young children identified with an autism spectrum disorder within the past year. However, the content is applicable to any parents who are looking for strategies to support their young child with an autism spectrum disorder.
