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?

A 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.
