Autism Live is today launching a new online portal, called “Parent 2 Parent,” featuring informative two-minute clips to educate parents on all things related to autism spectrum disorder (ASD), ranging from “Does my child have autism?” to more targeted issues, such as “How do I prepare for an IEP meeting?”
You have unlimited access to the clips on the Parent 2 Parent YouTube playlist, located at
“This series of videos will provide parents with answers and empower them to get the help their children need as quickly as possible,” says Autism Live host Shannon Penrod, who knows firsthand the value of having immediate access to autism resources. Her son was diagnosed with autism in 2006.
“At the time, information on autism was not readily available to me. Other parents still find this to be an issue. Parent 2 Parent is designed to give parents of children with autism spectrum disorder useful tips in an easy-to-understand format, right at their fingertips.”
Autism Live is sponsored in part by the Center for Autism and Related Disorders (CARD), Inc., one of the world’s largest and most effective autism treatment providers offering evidence-based, state-of-the-art services to individuals of all ages. In August 2009, CARD researchers published “Retrospective Analysis of Clinical Records in 38 Cases of Recovery from Autism” in the Annals of Clinical Psychiatry, showing that recovery from autism is possible with early, intensive intervention using applied behavior analysis.
Autism Live is an interactive web show providing support, resources, information, entertainment, and inspiration to parents, teachers, and practitioners working with children on the autism spectrum. For more information about Autism Live, visit http://www.autism-live.com.
