Where do I start??
We would be happy to help you through the early stages of figuring out how to deal with an autism diagnosis. It's important to remember that this is an overwhelming situation for anyone, and your family is not alone. Call us today for advice on how to progress. Autism Speaks has a wonderful guide for helping families through the first 100 days after diagnosis:

What kinds of therapies, social skills groups, and family and professional training opportunities does Family First provide?
Family First provides one-on-one therapy, small group programming, and social skills groups. We also provide parent training to ensure that parents are able to incorporate their children's progress into the home environment. For children who struggle with getting along with siblings, we offer sessions with brothers and sisters in order to promote more appropriate interaction. In order to help generalize skills across environments, we offer educational consultation. We are always happy to attend meetings at school, including special education meetings.
