Autism Society of Ohio invites you to get involved in our Big Give for Autism (#AutismBigGive) on September 17.This is a day for you to provide real help for people and families living with autism.  Why should you get involved?  Consider these facts:

  • Every day 126 people are diagnosed with autism; that’s one person every 11 minutes.

  • Currently, there are an estimated 3.5 million people in the United States living with autism spectrum disorder.

  • People with autism and their families must navigate difficult systems, and many adults on the autism spectrum are denied basic civil rights, such as access to transportation, housing and jobs appropriate to their knowledge and skills.

For fifty years, the Autism Society has supported individuals with autism, their families, caregivers and friends as we advocate for better services and provide the latest information regarding treatment, education, research and advocacy. 

By supporting the Autism Society of Ohio, you join with thousands across the country to provide much-needed support for individuals with autism and their families.

What to do When Your Child Exhibits Dangerous Behaviors

Parent Category: Parent Resources

Dangerous_Behavior_CoverA child who exhibits severe behaviors—self-injury, aggression and property destruction—presents a significant challenge for parents. In some instances, outbursts can be handled within the family; that is, the parents’ intervention may be enough to keep the child stable and the family secure. But in other cases, the behavior can be so extreme that parents need additional support.

This guide was developed to help families get the support they need. This guide will answer the following three major questions:
1. When should families seek help?
2. What should parents do when their child is exhibiting dangerous behavior?
3. Where can families obtain additional support?

Choosing An Autism Scholarship Provider

Parent Category: Parent Resources

ScholarshipCoverA guide to help you sort out the educational options under the Autism Scholarship for your child with autism other than public school. This includes assembling an educational team from a variety of providers. Just as all public school programs are different, so too, are all Autism Scholarship providers. It is important to evaluate any program you might be considering, both public and private, weighing the pros and cons of each, keeping the needs of your child with autism and your families’ needs in mind. But doing so can be confusing, That’s why the Autism Society of Ohio has created this guide. It will first help you identify the needs of your child and their learning style. The next section of the guide will help you evaluate a specific program, allowing you to evaluate perspective programs against your child’s current program. Finally there are a list of questions that you should consider when looking at any provider or program – costs, teachers, administrators, reputation and more.  Additional check lists are available by clicking here.
