The US Center for Disease control estimates that 1 in 88 children born in the US are somewhere on the autism spectrum. That’s a lot of kids with a lot of parents needing resources. So, based on my service as a homeschooling advisor and a mental health counselor, I’ve accumulated a few resources to help. Can you add some more?

Aspergers Experts

I love these guys. They really help teens understand themselves and adults understand what’s going on with their teens.

Autism Speaks

Excellent advocacy and research organization. Lots of good information and resources.

Layered Soul

Stacey Lane is honest, open, and encouraging about homeschooling when there are autism and other challenges.

Special Needs Radio at the Coffee Klatch

Brings interviews and also blogs by some of my favorite people like Temple Grandin and Russell Barkley. (They cover a range of different special needs topics.)

Temple Grandin’s Resources   

Dr. Grandin, who is on the spectrum herself, has done an amazing job collecting resources on sensory training, social skills, and more by various people. Check out her catalog.

HSLDA’s Special Needs Resources

I think that being an HSLDA member is important. One reason is their great resources and support.

There are tons of various resources on my Special Needs Pinterest Board and on 7Sisters Homeschool Special Needs Pinterest Board.

    I received this from Jenny Wise at specialeducator.com

    She has a huge list of posts about autism and education at her site. Here’s her note:

    As a homeschool teacher and the parent of an autistic child, I’ve learned a lot about how important it is to pay attention to the individual needs of _every_ student — especially special education students, who may need specific classes or individual help to be successful. It can be tough to know the best approach when reaching out to those with special needs, so I’ve done some research to help educators and
    families get started. I’m at: specialhomeeducator.com
