Helpful information is sometimes available on line, or through local or national organizations specializing in Autism. Typically however, information contained through the internet is general, often related to types of services available, and is not personalized or specific enough to be of help in the immediate moment.

Dr. Kleber has provided support to families and schools in the role of a "Parent Advocate" to help resolve differences in perceived educational needs of a student. His style would best be described as non adversarial, and collaborative to best fit the needs of the student and reconcile the perspectives of both family and educational system. This arena happens to be a big one these days! Many parents and families are desperate for support in fighting for the services they need for their child in the schools!

 

When a child with Autism or Autism Spectrum Disorder is born into a family, parent, grandparents, extended family members or caregivers are often on their own when it comes to figuring out how to imtervene with a child's behavior, when to push for specialty services (education, speech/language, sensori-integration, or other services), or perhaps what the implications are for siblings of an autistic brother or sister growing up within the family system. Parents often differ in child rearing practices, or disciplinary beliefs, or specific caretaking responsibilities. All of these issues really matter in a very special way when it comes to raising a son or daughter with an Autism Spectrum Disorder.

I believe that families and parents are very interested in self empowerment, and learning how to best care for and parent their child with unique and special needs! This site is able to address a broad range of issues and questions that arise in all families or persons involved in providing care for a person with Autism or ASD. These may related to diagnostic issues, educational matters, sibling relationships, speech / language/ sensori integration topics, psycho-pharmacology issues, social skills training, child care or respite services, social relationship challenges, or an infinite variety of behavioral challenges. When immediate access to formal treatment services is not available to families..... the questions remain, the need for support exists, and reliable information is both supportive, comforting, and empowering.
