Autism is a life-long condition with no known cause or cure (yet). Individuals on the autism spectrum may have low to high support needs. They can be supported with proper intervention and training.

If you are a caregiver of a person on the autism spectrum, do know that you are not alone in your challenging journey to support your loved one(s). Be brave and seek help when you need an extra hand.
