Autism Resources

Here are some of the best resources I’ve found since our journey with Autism began in 2008.
I add to this list on a consistent basis so check back often!

Website:

TACA (Talk About Curing Autism) – very family friendly site full of resources including first steps after diagnosis, diet foods and sample menus, and local groups to meet.

Age of Autism – full of information and other resources concerning every aspect of Autism.

Autism Research Institute – focus on diagnosis and treatment, and the DAN (Defeat Autism Now) movement.

Generation Rescue – Jenny McCarthy and Jim Carrey’s organization devoted to reversing Autism and it’s symptoms.

Autism One – a site with tons of resources and info, but also great for networking and meeting others

Parents (Autism Search Results) – Parents magazine website has a lot of good articles, catered to us everyday parents.

50 Great Blogs and Links for Autism Teacher (and Parents) – This is a great resource of the best Autism sites.

Books:

Ten Things Every Child With Autism Wishes You Knew by Ellen Notbohm
Told from a child with Autism’s perspective, this is the most meaningful book I have read since Jaylen’s diagnosis. It is simple, yet full of information. It is a quick read, yet I refer to it often still now.

My Brother Charlie by Holly Robinson Peete and Ryan Elizabeth Peete
A great book for kids affected by Autism personally, or through someone they know who is diagnosed. This is a bedtime book for us once a week. My son loves it and picks it often, even though he has yet to realize why he is like Charlie.
