- Review programs often to see if they are really moving our kids toward independence
- Consistency cannot replace quality. However consistency is critical for a successful outcome. I have learned that the best quality if not delivered consistently will not get the best result.
- When ever possible get outside evaluations that can be given to schools and service providers just in case there is a disagreement about diagnosis or needed services. Check with your local hospitals, clinics or physicians to find out who can do the evaluations.
- Get evaluations from people who have expertise working with children with autism and
routinely do the type of evaluation you need.
