Attention: Parents, educators and others looking for a community from around the world who help each other create success for individuals with autism, Asperger’s Syndrome and related learning needs.
Welcome. . .
I'm Linda Hodgdon, the founder and host of Autism Family Online and I'm on a mission! As a speaker and author I have traveled around the world consulting with people and teaching effective strategies for improving communication with individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
My mission has been to find the most successful parents and educators of individuals with ASD and learn their secrets. And I've found them! Now I want to share this information with you, right here at AutismFamilyOnline.com.
Are you new to autism? Or are you a “seasoned pro” with this population? No matter what your level of knowledge is right now, you will be a welcome member here. In this place you will have an opportunity to share what you already know and to gain more information to build on your present understandings.
The world of autism is confusing and complex. But there are wise, tested, state-of-the art solutions and best practices that make a difference for students in their homes and classrooms.
There ARE answers. Students DO make progress. And WE do benefit from having a support network.
Isn't it time you learned from others you can relate to? Here you can join a group of people who share their vision and the truth about their own experiences. We have a common goal. . . .helping individuals with ASD and related learning challenges become participating family members at home, successful students at school and adults who get their needs and desires met.
Even if you have the support of a great team in your school or within your family, it always helps to have a place to go for more. That's why we are glad you are here.
