If you are worried about your child's mental health, follow your instincts. Unexplained
changes in your child's behavior and/or mood may be the early warning signs of a mental health condition and should never be ignored. There are many different types of mental
illness, including anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, eating disorders, ADHD and autism spectrum disorder, and it isn't easy to simplify the range of challenges children face. One
way to begin if you are concerned is to get an evaluation for your child or teen by a licensed mental health professional. Because all children and youth are unique and local mental health services, insurance coverage and school services vary from community to community, it is a challenge to find the right kind of help for your child.

Hello, my name is Bobby Porter from Front Royal, VA, I am also the father of a 20-year-old son with severe, but verbal autism (HE ALSO HAS Bipolar Disorder, Schizophrenia, and Sensory Processing DISORDER, AN ADDED BONUS!!).
He has always had difficulty with the Alphabet and Numbers at the same time. I found a way to match the number to the letters using alphanumeric character matching. It was found by placing Letters and numbers together it gave text or numeric values that he was able to understand and memorize the values together as one action.
That is why I created this book and started a parent of children with autism support group, to educate parents and family members that alphanumeric character matching may be helpful for your child. Every child with autism is different, not all autism is the same. Learn more click here
