Interview with Mom Part II

Video Summary

A mother with 2 children on the autism spectrum and a third with developmental delays, discusses the importance of going with your "gut" as a parent, accessing early intervention services and learning how to turn every day into an educational environment for your child with autism.

"If I had said at that first assessment, 'Ok...he's borderline, so let's not go with the services,' I would have had to call them again 3 months later... So my thought would be the services don't hurt your child, so if there's a chance that your child might be delayed, you should go for it, be aggressive."
— Mom of Gabriel, Ben and Nathan
