We are really excited to introduce you to, Answers Now, a new sponsor on site.
AnswersNow is an innovative new service that’s addressing a very real problem. How do parents of children with autism get access to expert advice when they need it most? AnswersNow was started by two clinicians who were frustrated by how isolated and overwhelmed parents were and they set about to fix it.
Their ‘Answer’ was a simple idea. A parent signs up for the app on their mobile device, fills out a 2-minute questionnaire and then is paired with an expert who has experience with their child’s unique needs. In less than 24 hours they’re chatting away with their assigned expert and building a powerful, trusting relationship. To try it out simply go to getanswersnow.com/get-started!
Any parent or caregiver of a child diagnosed with autism can benefit. Parents are using the service in a wide variety of ways: assistance with specific behavior issues, guidance on how to navigate school systems, a ‘go-to’ for weekend/evening questions, an understanding/non- judgmental sounding board to name a few. In the same way every child diagnosed with autism is unique, so is every family.
It’s as simple to use as a text message. Simply open the app, text your question or concern and your clinician will work with you whenever you want. Learn more at getanswersnow.com!
Editor’s Note: I have been using this app for a few months and have found it to be very helpful. I really like the ability to have a professional to ask questions to and know that an answer will be coming quickly. I have found the app to be easy to maneuver and easy to communicate with. I wondered if I would “have enough to say” or, “know what to ask” and that has not been an issue. Each question, concern or thought I have asked has been dealt with in a way that I felt supported, understood and comforted. I have gotten good tips and look forward to continuing. I am happy to answer any questions if anyone would like to check in with me.
