From creating a visual schedule at home to learning basic Sign Language and with more to come; have a look and stay awhile!
While it may not have been the initial primary focus, one of the focuses has always been to provide resources for families with children on the autism spectrum. One of the ways I can do this is by sharing free printable resources for autism.Whether that was through helpful articles or printable packs, being a mom of a teenager on the autism spectrum has given me an interesting perspective on life.
I’m not trying to claim that my journey is the first and I know that it won’t be the last. However, if I can help someone else along the way; I will feel all the better. From expressing my own experience with the initial diagnosis to handling (and not handling) the guilt and unexpected grief that followed; it has always been my hope that this blog can be of some help. That’s why I wanted to gather all of the free printables for autistic children that I’ve created so far. And I say so far because there are definitely plans for more.
This page will be updated whenever a new printable pack or resource has been created.
These free autism materials are sorted by type and intended use.
