The Number One Fact That Parents of Children on
The Autism Spectrum MUST Recognize to Succeed
The quality of parenting determines the level of the child’s success. Children on the spectrum need parenting on steroids! Unlike neuro-typical children, our children depend on us to mediate between them and their world. If we are confused about what to do, frustrated, afraid, or angry as a result of life with autism, we CANNOT show up as the powerful parent our child needs for his or her best chance of success, yet this is exactly what so many of us experience.
The more we understand about the dynamics of autism, the more we embrace it and gain knowledge, skills and tools to navigate the experience effectively, the more we can support our child, and the better chance our child will have to succeed in life and function in the world independently.
