Maintaining a good peace of mind has a huge impact on everything you do. Caring for someone with autism also means trust is a very important factor. Trust that your instincts will guide you in making the best decisions about care but remember to monitor your own state of mind and understand where your decision making is coming from.
"If something doesn't seem right, I trust my gut and look for answers." - Member of MyAutismTeam
"When my child was first diagnosed, I kept my mouth shut even if a teacher or therapist said something incorrect about autism or my child. I'm learning to trust those feelings - my intuition - and speak up." - Member of MyAutismTeam
Here are some conversations about trust on MyAutismTeam:
• "Don't be afraid to ask questions! As parents, we know our children best so if there is any doubt or second-guessing of any kind to bring it up because this process essentially is laying the guidelines for your child's entire future."
