While You Wait
The While You Wait resource list is designed to support parents and caregivers during the waiting period for an autism diagnostic evaluation or services following a diagnosis.
This curated list includes videos and websites that provide valuable information and resources to help set up your family for success during this time. We understand the challenges and uncertainties that come with waiting, and our aim is to equip you with the knowledge and tools needed to navigate this phase with confidence. These resources offer guidance, support, and valuable insights to ensure that your child’s journey towards a brighter future begins with a strong foundation.
These trainings require a short survey before accessing the videos.
