When parents learn that their child has autism, they are often scared and overwhelmed by it. This is why organizations such as Autism Speaks serve as great sources of information to help parents know how to truly understand their child and condition. Here are some ways to promote autism acceptance.
- Communicate with your child’s teachers if they are going to school already. Talk to them about how to deal with your child’s condition within a school setting. You may also provide them with a helpful resource.
- Having a reward system in place can help. Many parents use the Token Management Theory because it is helpful in keeping both parents and child calm.
- Read and research about stories of parents with children with autism. You can learn a lot by reading about their real-life experiences.
- Show support by wearing autism charm jewelry. It is a great way to show that you are for spreading understanding and love about autism.
