Support Affect Autism

Affect Autism was created to empower parents by saving them the time and energy that we expended when our child was diagnosed with autism as we looked for the best approach. We believe a respectful, developmental approach is the only way our child will feel safe to thrive and wanted others to have access to learn about the Developmental, Individual differences, Relationship-based (DIR) model and Floortime. Note that Affect Autism is the parent outreach for, but remains independent from, the Interdisciplinary Council on Development and Learning (ICDL). Daria Brown is the Parent Advocate at ICDL and facilitates the weekly Parent Support Meetings.

There are a few ways you can help support our efforts in getting the word about this wonderful developmental approach:
