The presentation above is an attempt for busting myths surrounding Autism. Awareness of any developmental delay or knowledge about a disorder resulting from the delay can help caregivers gain acceptance and also prompt them to seek better management strategies. Just like any disorder, the rising incidence/awareness about Autism have also raised several doubts. Moreover, these doubts often transform into myths surrounding the condition. 

In this presentation, we are busting some of the common myths surrounding Autism that parents with a child on the spectrum often ask. Download this document to inform yourself about your child’s condition. It will also help you tell facts from fiction with regard to the condition. 

Read about common questions that emerge in any young parent’s mind whose child has been newly diagnosed with Autism. By learning more about the condition you can help understand your child’s unique needs better.
