Have you ever been embarrassed by a public tantrum at the grocery store or restaurant? Trust me...you aren't the

only one. Join a support group to build community with other families, share tips, and encourage each other. In many support groups, you will find families who have already been through what you are going through. You can gain many tips and resources to strengthen your understanding of your child and his/her needs.
