Making an Impact

ASD Strategies in Action is making a difference in the lives of individuals and families across the country.

It is easy to use. The information is provided very clearly and can be easily applied to real life.

A tremendous opportunity to gain a better understanding of ASD and the information provided can profoundly impact lives.

As I watched the video, I started thinking about making any potential caregivers (sitters, aides) watch the video before providing care to my children.

I am a parent of a recently diagnosed young adult and am playing “catch up” and also needing to explain what my daughter needs from her new services. This curriculum will be sent to them by me.

It enables me to understand the frustration that my grandson feels when confronting a new situation. I know that he is not merely acting out and seeking attention.

It will be very beneficial having the general public be exposed to such an educational module to help them understand and support individuals with ASD and their families.
