Autism, 2.10 (R) Suggested Activity: Interview a Parent of a Child with ASD

Suggested Activity: Interview a Parent of a Child with ASD

Every family has a different journey to receiving a diagnosis and eventually treatments and interventions for their child. In order to get a more personal perspective on this journey, interview a parent of a child with Autism and ask them about their journey. Some questions to consider asking are: When did you suspect that your child was developing differently? How did you receive the actual diagnosis (Who, When, Where) Since receiving the diagnosis, what therapies and treatments have you tried? Which do you feel have benefited your child/family the most? What would your advice be to a parent who suspects their child has developmental differences? There are many families who are very open abut sharing their story, but conversely there are many who may not be comfortable talking about it. If you know someone personally who has a family member with ASD, they may be a good person to approach. If you do not, you may want to contact your local Family Resource or Family Empowerment Center, your local chapter of Autism Society of America or your local chapter of Autism Speaks.
