“Talking to other parents has been the biggest help.”The Autism Site
Raising a child with ASD is a challenging and often isolating job. Talk about Autism, a UK-based online community, aims to combat this isolation by creating a worldwide network of parents, carers, family members, people on the spectrum, and professionals. According to their website, Talk about Autism is “a safe and friendly place to share your story, get support and discuss how autism impacts on your life.”
In this video, Tracy Beadle, a mother of two boys on the Autism spectrum, shares her parenting experience and describes the incredible support she’s found through online communities like Talk about Autism.
