Autism is a complex developmental disability that typically appears during the first three years of life and is the result of a neurological disorder that affects the normal functioning of the brain, impacting development in the areas of social interaction, communication skills, and behavior.
Here's a list of Autism related resources available in Cache Valley. I personally have experience only with the ones the train parents to work in their own home with their own children. I got the rest of them from recommendations in a local autism facebook group, which is linked at the bottom.
If you suspect Autism or other delays, contact Up to 3 Early Intervention. They do in-home testing and a little bit of therapy until your child is 3. And then they connect you to public school services (which you can choose to use or not) and also a couple of local organizations which are more conducive to use with homeschool.
