@keely21 Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect! We are all patients, caregivers, or family members, sometimes wearing more than one hat at a time. We will not give medical advice, but share our experiences and knowledge.

In order to see how we can help you, are you comfortable giving us a bit more information? How old is your son? Has he been formally diagnosed with autism. Any Individual Education Program [IEP] in place for him? How did he handle to lockdown of the COVID pandemic, in relation to learning or socializing?

Thank you. We are here to help you!

Thanks for the reply. My son is 11. We started the journey of getting him diagnosed right when covid hit. We have been lucky. We live in a small community so our schools have been able to stay open for the most part. He did virtual school for about 2 weeks which was hard. It's hard to help him understand . I do my best as a parent. I'm looking into ABA therapy and he does have a iep in place for school. Ideas from other parents?
