Talking to parents about an Autism assessment or Autism Diagnosis is HARD.  And add a language barrier to the mix, it can be even more difficult. 

 

Maybe you are still learning how to be a Neurodiversity positive therapist and are worried you will say something wrong, or in a way that doesn't translate well. 

 

Maybe you feel anxious having these conversations because you are worried parents will ask a question that you don’t know the answer to.

 

Maybe you feel guilty that your schedule does not allow you to spend several hours talking directly to the parent- that you know they deserve.

 

So, maybe you are feeling like you aren’t supporting your families in the way you should, OR are working countless hours after your workday that leaves you feeling like either a bad therapist or guilty for missing family time. But here’s the thing: You are not a bad therapist and you shouldn’t have to work outside of your workday in order to feel successful at work. 

 

The point is, needing a go-to Autism Handbook to support parents at this time is totally reasonable - and I have them all here and ready for you to print and go!
