When caregivers receive a formal diagnosis of a developmental and ASD diagnosis, a journey of discovering and accessing available resources starts. Resource navigation has never been a simple “copy and paste” process. It is a tailored-made process as everyone’s needs are so unique.
Therefore, caregivers may feel anxious about what can be expected when their child is set to receive the appropriate support. Having someone to sit down with the caregivers to understand their situation, explain the available resources and support them through the process is an essential first step for many families.
