1.) Let’s start with the easiest: On the way to your weekly or daily trip to the grocery store, ask if there is anything you can pick up for their family.

2.) Learn the facts about autism, but don’t give advice.

3.) Take the sibling of the child who has special needs out for a special treat.

4.) Give the parents or single parent a night out.

5.) Okay, you’re not good with kids. But you’re organized, and like to help others be the same. Offer to help with housework or organize their office.

6.) Bring over a cooked meal.

7.) Ask your high school child to volunteer their time weekly to play with the child who has autism.
