Re: Help! Mother of recently diagnosed 2 year old.

Hi Jaimee123.

I know that it may seem like your world is chaotic at this point, but trust me when I say that having a child with autism is by no means as scary as you may imagine it. You will come too see what I mean as your child develops and grows into a productive, contributing member of society.

First off, what state are you in and what type of therapy is your daughter receiving, what level of functionality has she been diagnosed, is Applied Behavior Analysis/Beh. Modification at the forefront of her educational program etc.. Your local school district should have a Child Find program set up for early educational intervention that is capable of assisting you ASAP. Also, you may want to contact your state dept. of family services for some direction as far as ssi is concerned. They may also offer a respite program geared towards offering assistance with giving you a break/a sitter.
