Autism Care Network is a family oriented strength-based-approach community support group created to help connect and assist caregivers of children on the spectrum.
We help in unlocking human potentials by promoting HOPE and identifying available resources, builds strengths through rewarding coping strategies within the individual, family, peer group and community, rather than focus solely on the problems or challenges in handling the child.
We encourage and provide invitations for families to attend available or funded Autism seminars, encourage them to use this forum of discussion to express or share their experiences.
Why is Autism Care Network Different?
Because we care about addressing the child’s unique behavior first!
Here at Autism Care Network, creating and maintaining an active network of supporters is very important to us. Connecting and coordinating healthcare benefits, discussing waiver options, exchanging ideas on coping strategies within the group to help boost participation. Sharing ideas through related blogs and write-ups, informal luncheon gathering or dinner, spa and movie support group meetings, which serves as a platform for connection and inspiration.
Autism Care Network directs families and caregivers on the next step to be taken, propelling them towards the appropriate treatment required, so they do not miss out of the evidence-based treatment (the same treatment that has already improved the lives of thousands of children and their families).
