To take good care of your child, you need to take care of yourself!
Caring for a child with autism can be a fulfilling experience. It can also be challenging and stressful. Caregivers and parents sometimes forget to take care of themselves as much as they do their children.

Connect with support programs and other parents! See the section above to find listings.
And remember, you are not alone in this.
Your child with autism loves you, and so do your other children and your extended family. Together you can all support each other and offer a helping hand when needed.
