1. Reach out to a family affected by autism
Parents can have a tough (not to mention stressful) time raising one or multiple kids with autism or an autism-related-disorder. Lending a hand and to help out can make families affected by autism feel like part of their community. This can also help improve the kids’ social skills. The little things are big things. You can do anything from including a child with autism in a group activity, or volunteering to babysit. It is very important that parents of a child with autism have some time to relax.
2. Volunteer and spread autism awareness
