“Autism Parenting Magazine is the leading magazine for parents of autistic children as well as professionals working with children on the spectrum. Our magazine features articles from hundreds of contributors including respected professionals, autism experts, parents of children on the spectrum, and adults with autism. Since 2012, our focus has been on objectively publishing autism-related topics, events, developments, treatments and news stories on autism to include health, safety, sleep, toilet training, sensory issues, stress, innovative products, and newly published books.
Another key topic we focus on each month is communication as many children with autism have difficulty developing language skills which can create a multitude of challenges. For children with autism, there are endless educational and social advantages to using technology to help facilitate communication, especially through the use of a tablet or smartphone. Not only can it enhance receptive language, reduce behavioural issues and frustration, and make language more visual, is it portable and user-friendly.
There are hundreds of apps that can be used to help navigate daily challenges with autism, enhance learning, and educate. In an effort to help families, we compiled all the best mobile autism apps in an exclusive guide called Best Autism Apps For iPad, iPhone and Android.
We believe focusing on a person’s strengths and interests will increase confidence and foster living the most independent and successful life possible. We know every child with autism is different, and as such, respond differently to a variety of approaches and techniques. All people should have the same opportunities presented to them with assistance as needed.”
