Quick Answers

 

 

How would you approach parents about autism when you see the signs? How do you handle this situation when the parents are very resistant to the diagnosis?


There is an excellent discussion of this topic at http://www.firstsigns.org/concerns/doc_parent.htm#bad_news. It is oriented to physicians, but much of the information applies to any professional who talks with families about developmental concerns.
