Great Books to Read to Children, Students, Family & Community during April
Acceptance is the key to making a difference. When people understand that a child with ASD learns differently and needs different supports I see the BIGGEST difference for the child, family and school.
There are three parts to understanding the ASD diagnosis:
When to Tell a Child
What to Tell a Child
Who and How to Tell (Talking to Class, Peers)
Part 1: When to Tell the Child
Dr Tony Attwood recommends you tell the child around seven years of age or when they start noticing difference.
“Diagnosis for my son opened a whole lot of self-acceptance for him. He realised that although he always felt different, that there was a group of people who are the same as him. We viewed diagnosis as a tool to help us and others best help our son. School has been very supportive, and family have had greater understanding of the ‘weird things’ that my son has done.” Jenny
