After receiving a diagnosis of autism or researching the diagnosis at various stages within their child’s lifespan, parents may become overwhelmed with the information that is available on the internet. And, as is commonly known, not all information on the internet is accurate! You are asked to conduct an internet search and identify two websites related to autism spectrum disorders. Please provide a web link to each website.
One website must be a reputable autism agency (must not be Autism Speaks) that is either local or national. Provide a brief description of the agency and the information they offer to parents.
The other website should be one that provides misleading information or information on a therapy that may not be evidence based but claims it “works” for autism. To guide you with your search for this second website, you can consult the FDA consumer warnings on autism therapies at this website https://www.fda.gov/ForConsumers/ConsumerUpdates/ucm394757.htm (Links to an external site.) Provide a brief description of the information presented in the website and why parents should proceed with caution in understanding the information.
