Thanks to Parents Magazine for spreading the word

We’re so happy our friend Kara Corridan at Parents Magazine included us in her blog post, Is Autism Being Diagnosed Too Late?
Kara shares our concerns about the age of diagnosis for kids with autism. We’re thankful she’s helping us get the word out and letting people know that Easter Seals is here to help!
Through generous support from CVS Caremark, we’re able to offer free access to Brookes Publishing’s Ages & Stages Questionnaires (ASQ). When parents and caregivers go to the questionnaire, they can complete the online screening to see whether their child is developmentally on track.
Personally, I’ve had a lot of fun creating materials, pitching and writing about the ASQ — I think it’s such a cool tool! I’ve sent the link to all my friends with young kids.
Like Kara said in her post, the ASQ does not offer a diagnosis, but it can definitely help you share your concerns with your child’s pediatrician. We hope that you’ll share the link with your friends — and we can all help lower the age of diagnosis.
