Helpful Autism Resources

April is Autism Awareness Month (I’ve even seen it called “Autism Acceptance Month”), and each year I usually post my thoughts on Autism Awareness or experiences as a mother of a child on the Autism Spectrum. This year, though, I wanted to change it up a little to share a round-up of Autism resources. I know firsthand how lost we can sometimes feel, and we scour the internet for resources to support us on our journey. Sometimes we can really feel isolated and alone.

All of our journeys are different, but you’re not alone. I wanted to share resources for a broad spectrum because I know, for example, although we homeschool our special needs children, many people need access to resources in the public school system. Although our son is young, you may have an older child or are an adult on the Autism Spectrum. Wherever your are on your journey, I hope you find this list of resources helpful.

(I plan to continue to add to this list of resources as I discover more helpful resources because I know there are many more. If you know of any you have found particularly, please do share! Bookmark this post for easy reference.)

Autism Resources

I plan to go through those that offer lists and choose the resources I find most helpful from them to save a step, but I wanted to get a list of resources in front of you so you can easily find the resources your family needs. I am always happy to connect and talk with and pray with/for you any time you just need to connect or support and encouragement. Days (or weeks or months) can be tough, but you’re not alone – we’re not alone.

  1. Thanks for the list of resources. I’m a substitute teacher and often have students with autism in my classroom. I like the tips for teachers. I learned to use less words and give fewer choices, thanks!

  3. My great-nephew is autistic and sadly I had a hard time understanding this condition. Thank you for the resources you have provided. I now have a greater understanding.

    Being the Grandma to an Autistic Grandson has its challenges, but also huge rewards. This resource list is great. Thank you. My daughter belongs to a support group right on FB that has supported her from day one of the diagnosis. Its invaluable…
