Surf These Sites for Information Regarding Autism

searching for resources about autism

Google is a useful tool. Like any tool, however, you have to know how to use it.

Parents of children with autism are already overwhelmed before they get a chance to sit down at their laptop. The last thing they need is to scroll through the tens of millions of hits that result from entering the word “autism.” 

Among the first seven steps we have listed for parents of children with autism on the Alpha School web site are learn the lingo, seek educational programs and ask questions about your child. That should narrow down your search a bit but you might wish to explore other sites about autism. That occurred to us, so we assembled the following list of sites containing the most relevant information and resources:

Autism Speaks

Autism Society

Disability Scoop


Autism Highway & Autism Beacon

Healing Thresholds

This should get you off to a good start. 

Of course, this is a network of networks. You can also check out Autism NJ, Autism.Com and Autism Web for more networks of professionals and parents, as well as information regarding research and treatments. One site, Potty Genius, bravely delves into the daunting topic of potty training, using applied behavior analysis. The bottom line is, you are not alone. Over time you will eventually become so informed that your desire to share your experiences and knowledge could lead you to start your own web site or blogging platform.
