What Have You Learned As A Parent Of A Child With Autism Spectrum Disorder?

Your advice could help other parents.

Being the parent of a kid with autism spectrum disorder can be uniquely challenging...

But you do start to learn what works and what doesn't work for your child and your situation.

So, tell us: What advice and tips do you have that could help other parents and guardians?

Maybe you learned something about creating routines — like that it's been really helpful to keep them structured and consistent.

Maybe you've worked with a therapist or other expert who's provided specific tips, or just general wisdom, that you think is worth passing on.

Maybe you have some pointers for helping your child cope with a specific issue, like hypersensitivity, socializing, or communication.

Maybe you've just built valuable experience when it comes to parenting and homelife in general.

Or maybe you want to let other parents know some of the rewards of parenting a kid with ASD.

So tell us: What tips do you have for parents and guardians raising kids with ASD?

Using the dropbox below, tell us in a few sentences what comes to mind, whether it's about specific behaviors and needs, or just day-to-day life. Details are great, so don't be afraid to give too much advice.
