Daughter was diagnosed with autism. What do I do now?

See below. Time to help her. Your doctor should help you arrange possible early intervention services, speech therapy , and behavioral therapy. All these services may or may not be needed. Also, when your child attends school, she will qualify for an individual education plan, iep. Which will help her obtain an optimal education experience.
Autism Speaks. On www.Autismspeaks. Org you can either download the 100 days kit or, if she was diagnosed within the last 6 months, call them (i think it's 1-800-autism2) and ask for a hard copy. If you speak with them, tell them if you want to pick up the kit at your nearest fedex or if you want it mailed. The kit guides you as to how to get your child the services she needs.
