Where to Start

To be a parent or caregiver of a child with autism brings a unique set of experiences, joys and challenges. Regardless of where you may be in your family’s autism journey, there are a variety of resources and tools available to support you and the unique needs of your child and family. We encourage families to gather as much information as they can from reputable sources to understand what resources are available to them, their child, and what steps to take next.

Tips from a Lighthouse Board Certified Behavior Analyst

Lighthouse Autism Center believes that a parent knows their child best, and is best equipped to support them. However, we know that parents often look to providers and clinicians for support and tools to support their child and family and to implement in the home. For families who may be on waitlists for services, whether that be ABA therapy, speech therapy, occupational therapy, or other intervention services, we often times here that families need help at home while they wait.

Lighthouse Autism Center’s team of Board Certified Behavior Analysts compiled a list of frequent topics and goals that parents want to work on at home. We have included that list below as well as some steps that you can consider implementing with your child. Remember, while we have provided a general list of steps and tips you can try at home, this is not meant to replace a customized therapy program that is designed and developed by a certified clinicians following your child’s assessment for therapy.
