Autism is a disorder that has long been misunderstood. There are unique talents and gifts a person with autism might have. Bringing awareness to the disorder helps the public learn more; it also helps those who are newly diagnosed, as well as the parents and children who are living with it. In recognition of Autism Awareness Month (April), the experts from the NFDA Work/Life Resource Program (EAP), a benefit of your membership, have gathered information to help you learn more:
The Work/Life Resource Program (EAP) offers a toll-free hotline staffed by experts who can suggest resources and offer support, along with unlimited access to online resources for:
- Unlimited phone/online consultations and up to three in-person sessions with a licensed counselor
- Online referrals to: care services (adult, child or special needs care, summer camps, etc.); education services (school, tutoring, test prep, etc.); family services (parenting, adoption, pregnancy, infertility, etc.); convenience services (home repair, pet care, relocation, etc.); financial planning & referrals; legal information & referrals
- Articles, tools, webinars, podcasts and more!
The support offered through the NFDA Work/Life Resource Program is free and confidential. It is available to you, your immediate family, your staff, and members of their immediate family.
