Get ready emotionally

It's hard to have a label of autism placed on your child.

But the good thing about getting a diagnosis is that it opens the door to getting services and treatment that can help your child. It also helps you to connect with a community of other parents.

You know that your child is more than the diagnosis! 

Your child is a unique, beautiful person and has much to offer. So if the label bothers you, we understand. But we encourage you to try to accept it as a necessary way to get services and treatments that can make your child's life better. (And yours, too!)
