Resources

Families, Parents, Clinicians, Consultants and every other significant person that works with children and adults with multiple challenges, especially those working with individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders need a road map in order to enable them to work with this special population effectively. A road map that can help them to navigate and understand where they are heading and how to get to that specific destination is absolutely important. This takes us to the question; where do parents, Paraprofessionals, and professionals turn for assistance. The key is RESOURCES.

Resources and Assistance will definitely help us to begin this tough journey. Parents/ staff and even clinicians have to be armed with adequate and positive knowledge. Without a doubt, being equipped with adequate and necessary resources will certainly give us hope for a tremendous success.
