Parenting a child with autism can be challenging, and even though I have not done so, I suspect that parenting a child with autism during a pandemic brings a whole new set of issues. With classes oscillating between virtual and in person, routines are disrupted while the future seems to be in a constant state of upheaval.
That is why I am excited to offer you a FREE Autism Resource Guide, From Prompting to Shaping to Letting Go: A Resource Guide for Parenting Your Child with Autism.
The Guide has many useful links that will help you make treatment decisions for your child with autism (or for the child of a relative or friend!) and is divided into the following sections:
- A Place to Start
- Informational Websites
- Program Materials
- Parent Training Sites
The first section, “A Place to Start” addresses treatments, biological interventions and many other topics related to autism.
The Parent Training Sites are perfect for those parents who are interested in learning about Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). These sites are full of information and videos (some free and others for a fee) on how to behaviorally help your child, whether you want to teach new skills, address specific behaviors or establish soothing routines.
It is my hope that as you browse through the sections, the Guide will offer you what you need to help your child. In addition, it also serves as a way to branch out and click on the associated links in each site to find additional useful information.

And, as always, if you have any questions, please feel free to use the comment section or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you!
My book, From Prompting to Shaping to Letting Go: My Love Affair With ABA and How Being a “Bad Mom” Helped My Daughter With Autism Succeed, chronicles my experiences as I struggled to receive a diagnosis for my daughter. I eventually began a behavioral home program, and readers will be taken on a journey that spans from 1995 to 2019. Along the way, my daughter overcame many obstacles to become the smart young woman I am so very proud of today!
