The journey through autism presents many challenges and Fathers play a critical role in their child’s development each step of the way. Focused on being a good father and husband while maintaining a positive, healthy and safe family environment can be very challenging during this journey.

This support group is here for the Dads out there facing these challenges and bring them together to help one another. Whether you are struggling with first time diagnosis, a child going through puberty, sports or just want to talk to fellow Dads who can relate to everyday issues this site is for you.

This site is also here for all parents who want to discuss anything autism, or even just want to get a Fathers point of view.

I am the mom to an amazing 14-year-old boy who has autism, apraxia, sensory processing disorder, and a seizure disorder. Over the years, I have tried my share of both traditional and non-traditional interventions for my son, and I want to share what I have learned from those experiences to help other parents.

There are no “one-size-fits-all” answers for our kids, and I believe strongly that parents should be presented with options and be empowered to choose the treatments that resonate for their children. We know our kids better than anyone and should be the leaders of our kids’ teams, surrounding ourselves with people who believe in our kids as much as we do and who look at things from a holistic perspective. I would like to help parents be the leaders of their team and not have to feel at the mercy of others who don’t know their child the way a parent does.

Through the most challenging times of my son’s journey, I have studied how to manage my own attitude so that I can be the most effective advocate and parent for him. I want to pass along some of those attitudes and skills to again help empower parents.

With a strong desire help families and children through a linked team of professionals, KidsLink NeuroBehavioral Center was born in 2007! At KidsLink, we recognize how multiple settings impact the development and behavior of children with special needs. We strive to promote collaboration among the home, school, and community-based settings as we provide comprehensive services to children with autism and other developmental disabilities. In addition, we embrace an interdisciplinary approach to intervention, including collaboration among medical professionals, mental health professionals, speech and language pathologists, occupational therapists, physical therapists, educators, and related services personnel, as deemed appropriate to meet the comprehensive needs of our child patients and their families.
