"It takes a village to raise a child." This African proverb rings louder for children with autism. The Autism Society Philippines believes that parents should build relationships with professional, compassionate support teams who can advise and counsel them, in addressing the myriad of questions they have about raising children on the spectrum.
"If you have met someone with autism, you have met ONE person with autism." There is no substitute for personal consultations with professionals, which would consider traits and behaviors unique to the individual with autism.
