Re: new to autisim

Hello and welcome,
It is so hard to say what will work since every child with autism is different. Are there any programs or support groups in your area? I know it is hard to get out to meetings, etc., but maybe there is an online resource for your area. I see you are in the UK, I live in the USA so none of my resources
would be very helpful to you. I guess the best advice I could give is to work teaching into music, which you said he loves. In order to bring them (kids with autism) into our world, we first need to figure out a way to get into their world and slowly bring them out.
