Resources and Events

The Autism Consortium has developed a comprehensive set of materials, including a listing of resources and providers, links to seminars and events, and an extensive literature compilation for families and clinicians to learn more about autism and take action.  Whatever else you might learn from these materials, always remember that you are not alone. There are many professionals working hard to find the causes, new and more effective treatments, and resources for families like yours.

Manuals for children and young adults with autism

We have published two manuals designed to help families navigate the often complicated process of raising a child who is on the spectrum.

  • The Parent Information Packet, or PIP, guides families through the early years after diagnosis (including guidance on school and insurance).  This is offered in several languages.
  • The Transition Guide offers insight and resources for a child's transition to adult life.

The manuals are free.
