Sorry I didnt leave my tip for other parents, Take it day by day and always think positive!!
Also my favorite resource is Autism Society or others that have experience.

My favorite autism tip is using coconut oil to cook with. It is antiviral and antibacterial and fights yeast. Use it with garlic to make savory dishes (like fried rice) or use it as a butter/oil replacement in baked goods to offset the yeast feeding of the sugar. It is also great for the thyroid. Weston Price uses 2 teaspoons in the infant formula. It's an simple think to try to help with biomedical problems some kids with ASD are having.

Spend time with small children. It can be helpful when you can see how "typical" kids are developing. It really helps to have a perspective of how much our kids have not done versus how much they have accomplished! I think we tend to conform to each nuance of our child and we need to break out of this box. It is easy to stay stuck when you have no perspective from being with typical kids. We need to learn and guide our kids.
