When first learning their child has autism, parents often feel lost, confused and overwhelmed. For these families, Easterseals Midwest offers a unique service called Family Navigation.
Our Autism Services team has developed the innovative Family Navigation program to ensure that families will not have to “go it alone” during a difficult time. Our qualified professionals have been working with families impacted by autism for many years. With backgrounds in counseling, behavior therapy and autism assessments, their expertise is invaluable. They are well-versed in the services and resources available.
While people with autism share certain characteristics, no two people with autism are alike. For this reason, each affected family needs an individualized treatment plan to help their child reach his or her maximum potential. Our Family Navigators can help your family find the right path for you.
