Author: mom_to_one, 12 01st, 2011

An Autism diagnosis is never an easy one regardless of where your child falls on the spectrum. No two children are alike, and, for that matter, no two families are alike. Parenting a child with autism is not easy.Whatever approach to parenting you and your spouse choose needs to be the one that works best for your family.

Only a few pieces of advice will ring true for most families. First, educate yourself and your immediate family and friends. This will help you feel more in control of an uncontrollable situation, and it will also help you and your loved ones learn how best to interact with an autistic child. Second, seek help for your child as soon as possible, but also seek help for yourself. Taking care of an autistic family member is stressful and you’ll want a strong support network to lean on from time to time.
