Allows for parents of individuals with autism to share experiences and emotions. Mentoring is provided through the FEAT-NT information line, at our center, during support group meetings and at community events. Parent and family mentoring is provided by other parents with children on the autism spectrum that have mentored families for many years in the Dallas, Fort Worth, and surrounding areas. Information is often provided on getting a diagnosis, local resources, behavior strategies, book recommendations, intervention options, working with school districts and more. Attending a monthly autism or Asperger support group meeting provides additional opportunity to be mentored by many other parents, share experiences, and provide support for one another.
