#002: Early Detection and Treatment of Signs of Autism in Toddlers

Welcome to the second episode of my brand new podcast! This episode is specifically designed for both parents and professionals in the autism world who want to turn things around for their children or clients, be less stressed and lead happier lives.

Today I’m covering the topics of early detection and treatment of autism. Whether you’re a parent or the professional, you will likely be asked for advice by overwhelmed parents at some point… you need to know how to respond.

Many are looking for a little hope and encouragement, along with practical guidance on the first few steps to take. I explain the different ways you can to ease yourself or others out of denial about a child’s behaviorThose steps include sharing helpful information with them… such as this podcast.

I’ve written a free guide, Is It Autism, ADHD or Typical Toddler Tantrums, Three Steps You Can Take Today Instead of Worrying. Today I’ll share key points from this guide and tell you how to download your free copy. This is also great info to share with other parents!

I’ll also go over some of the major warning signs that could indicate your child has a form of autism. This info is especially beneficial if you’re already seeing signs of autism in a toddler.

Lastly, I cannot stress enough the importance of early ABA (Applied Behavioral Analysis) treatment. Parents can and should  be engaged in their child’s recovery and improvement early on—we are our children’s greatest advocates! I can help you start finding the resources you need to get started with ABA to help your child or clients TODAY.

Be sure to have pen and paper ready… you’re going to want to jot down the practical advice I give, along with the different websites and books I have found to be a great source of additional information on the topic of handling and helping children with autism.
