As a parent, the ASCV helped me understand and accept my child’s diagnosis. They provided a resource list of therapists and doctors that helped us in our journey post-diagnosis. I learned parent strategies through the many workshops that were sponsored by ASCV. The workshop speakers were all knowledgeable and experts in their field. I appreciated the child care that was provided during the workshop meetings for both my child with autism and the one without, so that I could learn as much as possible about the topics that were being discussed without having to pay for a babysitter. I also like the activities sponsored for the kids too, especially the holiday party, spring picnic, and Monkey Joe Bounce nights.
