Autism is a special challenge for anybody – for both the child who has it and the parents caring for them. But what if you live in a transitory existence, such as the military? Transferring from location to location. Mom or Dad deployed. Talk about changes! And most autistic children aren’t very good with transition. It’s a scary thing for them that they sometimes can’t process. It gives them tremendous amounts of anxiety.
I’d like to put an article together highlighting military families’ specific hints and tips. Please send us your stories and your knowledge! You can either comment here, or you can send me an email – firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to hearing from you!
