When a child is first diagnosed with autism, the parents need ample help and guidance.
At present, public medical and social service support for autistics still require a waiting period of six to nine months after initial diagnosis. LoveXpress, partnering with different professional, education and social institutions, has developed a holistic one-year program – “Early Intervention for Autistic Families”, to help low-income families during this period. The one-year program includes professional therapies, emotion counselling, parents’ training, social networking and home visits. It helps parents accept and positively face the challenges of autism, and methodically helps them plan the growth and development of their children within the golden treatment period of 0-6 years of age.
By supporting both parents and kids of families with autistic children, we establish and strengthen the ability of the entire family to face challenges together.
