The Warren Autism Link is a resource for teachers, parents, and community members to find information on visual supports, community events, and other resources for people with Autism.
KNOW THE SIGNS: EARLY INTERVENTION
Children do not "outgrow" Autism, but studies show that early diagnosis and intervention lead to signigicantly improved outcomes.
Here are some signs from the Autism Society of America to look for in the children in your life:
- Lack of or delay in spoken language
- Repetitive use of language and/or motor mannerisms (e.g., hand-flapping, twirling objects)
- Little or no eye contact
- Lack of interest in peer relationships
- Lack of spontaneous or make-believe play
- Persistent fixation on parts of objects
If you have concerns about your child please contact your doctor. If your child is under 3 years old you can also contact your local First Steps, 1-800-545-7763, if your child is 3 years or older, contact the Warren Special Education Office, 317-869-4400 for possible support.
Modules are away you can learn about a specific topic or strategy online. These "mini lessons" may include reading, videos, or a combination of both.
- Modules for families and educators include: Visual Supports, 5-Point Scale, Structured Work Systems, Transition, and PECS Access website>>
