Ask Jason's Mom - Episode 4

One of the components of The Answer Inc.'s mission, is to support & empower the families that we serve. Today, as a part of that mission, our CEO Debra Vines is continuing a series called “Ask Jason’s Mom” - within which she answers questions and dispels myths, specifically aimed at parents and family members of Children and Young adults living with Autism and Other Developmental Disorders.

In this episode, Debra addresses a parent’s request for tips on how to transition her child back to school. Below, is the second of two episodes dedicated to a series of tips collected from Debra’s personal experiences and other sources.

TIP #9 — Prep Slowly.

TIP #10 — Keep your IEP within arms reach.

TIP #11 — Create social stories.

TIP #12 — Get school physicals taken care of.

TIP #13 — Sit down and discuss the road ahead.

After viewing this episode, I hope that you will take a second to write any questions that you may have or any myth that you would like to see dispelled — in the comments section below it. And who knows… your questions may be answered in the next episode of “Ask Jason’s Mom”
