Parents need the support of professionals to seek out what's best for their child. Autism Connect was created to bridge this gap between parents and professionals and between information and action, all over the world. What every parent of a child with Autism wants is for their child to be able to integrate into society and get relief from their symptoms. Yet, despite going from pillar to post, from various doctors to therapists, from searching all through the internet and other information sources, they are still not able to find the most appropriate solution to their children’s problems. We at Autism Connect, believe there is a ray of hope and our endeavor is to bring to parents various tools, resources, newer and alternative treatment options, that they believe would benefit their child.
Whereas some parents are content with following the standard medical and rehabilitation options, there are other parents who believe in being proactive and searching out newer and alternative treatment options that they believe would benefit their child.
At Autism Connect, we believe in being proactive. However, we make our actionable recommendations based on the authenticated information. It is our belief that when conventional treatment options have not given relief to children, parents have a right to seek other solutions. Autism Connect provides information to parents about newer treatment options based on the principles of:
- Safety first
- The treatment being based on scientific publications
Yes, we are aggressive in our search for newer treatment options without ever compromising on the safety aspects of these treatments. Whereas there is a lot of information on the internet, which can sometimes be a guiding influence, but at other times may be misleading too. Information from scientific publications in medical journals is more authentic since this information has been peer-reviewed by people other than those who have published it and its scientific and ethical content is validated before being published. Therefore, almost all the information available on autismconnect.com has its information from published scientific sources.
Any feedback and inputs to improve is welcome and appreciated. Write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our goal is to help the millions of parents whose children are diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder to build a better life for their children.
