Bridging the Gap: Advocating for Your Child with Autism
Huhtanen, Shelly; Huhtanen, Mark
Exceptional Parent, v38 n12 p70-72 Dec 2008
The Huhtanens are a military family who are rising to the challenges of their son's recent autism diagnosis. They have been trying to stay afloat, facing the steep learning curve of interpreting and understanding TRICARE regulations, Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA), and biomedical options. In this article, the authors share their experience and certain things they wanted parents to know if they think their child could have severe delays or have autism. Parents should: (1) understand the milestones of their child's development; (2) be proactive in seeking medical care for their child; (3) know what to do if they receive a diagnosis of autism; and (4) take care of each other.
