This is a marathon, not a sprint.
What treatments are available for your child?
What treatments have been proven to be effective?
Make sure there are studies to back up the treatments.
A good site is the Association for Science in Autism Treatment www.asatonline.org
Interview them to find out what their approach is, what kind of knowledge and experience they have, and if they are accredited in their field.
A good place to look for other parents is through social media sites like Facebook. There are groups geared toward parents and families of children with Autism, Down Syndrome etc.
Some Facebook suggestions:
ABA for all
The Lovaas Institute
