Talking to Parents About Autism Action Toolkit:
Today, 1 in 110 children are diagnosed with autism. As a parent or early childhood educator, you may be the first to notice when a child is not meeting typical developmental milestones. When this happens, you need to approach a child psychiatrist or developmental paediatrician or talk to the parents and urge them to have their child screened. The Talking to Parents About Autism Action Kit contains the tools you need to initiate this critical dialogue. Having this conversation with parents can make all the difference in a child's life!
100 Day Kit
The Autism Speaks 100 Day Kit and the Asperger Syndrome and High Functioning Autism Tool Kit were created specifically for newly diagnosed families to make the best possible use of the 100 days following their child's diagnosis of autism or AS/HFA. Anyone can download the 100 Day Kit for free! To view more of Autism Speaks Family Services Tool Kits, visit: http://www.autismspeaks.org/family-services/tool-kits
