Be your child's first and biggest advocate. Read up as much as you can about the condition, preferably read the perspectives of people who live with it rather than "autism moms" and the like. Love your kiddo. Support their unique needs. Make sure to give yourself time for lots of self-care--parenting is hard enough without extra the extra stress and pressure of managing a medical condition. You've got this. Take it a day at a time and your child will grow because of your attention and care. Wishing you the very best of luck.
