The Journey To Good Health and Well-Being

What's in this issue?

It’s a new year! Let’s bid farewell to yesterday and welcome good health and well-being in the days ahead! Life with autism can have its highs and lows—that’s why it’s so important to seek guidance and a helping hand when needed. We hope being a part of our autism community will make a difference in your daily life.


Over the years, one of the most satisfying aspects of my role as editor-in-chief of Autism Parenting Magazine has been meeting the needs of our readers. Whether you are a newly diagnosed autism family or you have been on the journey for years, we strive to answer your toughest questions: Is it okay if my child with autism isn’t potty trained? Can a school legally use restraint and seclusion with an ASD child? Are there better educational choices for kids with special needs I don’t know about? How can I forge a healthy relationship with my teen? How can I better manage anxiety in my daily life? These are all important topics to tackle, and our team of experts has worked hard to provide top guidance.
