It’s been a few short years since we launched MyAutismTeam with just 30 parents in the San Francisco Bay Area. Today, MyAutismTeam has grown to more than 60,000 parents, making it the largest social network in the world for autism parents.
At MyAutismTeam, we believe that if your child on autism spectrum, whether they are young toddlers or young adults, it should be easy for you to connect with and get perspective from other parents just like you. You’re not alone and you don’t have to reinvent the wheel.
The infographic below represents just a sample of what you might learn from other parents on MyAutismTeam.
It turns out that the most common therapies families have tried also tend to be the ones viewed as most useful by the parents (many of whom have tried dozens of different therapies). Of course given the breadth of the autism spectrum, it is not surprising to see that the most common therapies sometimes differ based on the sub-diagnosis or specific development needs of the individual with autism. On MyAutismTeam you can search for other parents whose children share similar development needs as yours, are the same age, same gender, and even those who might live nearby. It’s great to connect with them and share experiences.
