I know how overwhelming it can be when you are trying to find information when your child has been diagnosed on the Autism Spectrum (or with ASD as it’s sometimes called). So many websites, so little time…
To try to help a little bit I have compiled a list below of some of the online resources available to those of seeking further information, as well as some of my own popular posts.
- From the edges of the Spectrum
- Let me tell you a story
- What would I tell you?
- Not better, not worse, just different
- Coming out from under the table
- Funding, diagnostic criteria and other fun topics
- Victorian Autism Conference Day One and Day Two
The below are all sites I have used personally, or have been recommended to me. I’ve tried to include sites from a range of authors, including those who identify as Autistic.
It’s by no means conclusive and I can’t vouch for the information contained on them, but you might find it a useful starting place.
