    Parenting A Child With Autism
    Andie_WebMD_Staff posted:
    If your child -- or the child of a close friend or relative -- has just received a diagnosis of autism , you are probably feeling baffled and overwhelmed.

    It is never easy to learn that someone you love has a serious health or developmental condition. But we can help by providing basic information about children with autism, autism symptoms and treatment, and how to get help.

    Learning all you can will ease your fear and confusion, and provide the tools you need to find the support that children with autism -- and you -- really need.
