I found this today when doing some research for my son who is on the spectrum. There is so much information out there, sometimes it’s overwhelming and discouraging. As a parent who had no background or education on autism I found it difficult looking online for answers with how to cope, how to teach him and how to help him. I still have difficulty but with prayer and being extremely hands on it is getting better. Although I still have a lot of questions, I will post links to information that I think will help us on our journey and it could possibly be of some help to you.
This link has some pretty useful tips that could help.
