When most families find out their child is diagnosed with a developmental disorder, they have a fear of the unknown.  A fear that their child will not grow up with the same opportunities as other children, a fear they will never learn the life skills necessary to live on their own, a fear they will never make friends.  While the initial diagnosis can be scary, learning more about this spectrum disorder can be encouraging for any family.  Education is key and we are here to help.
