Suggestions for ASD Parents

October 26, 2022

Parents of a child with Autism Spectrum Disorder are often tasked with juggling many roles beyond their typical responsibilities. Advocating for the child and finding the proper care are among the major challenges ahead — challenges that can be both stress-producing and time-consuming. We at Achievement Behavior Care are proud to be leaders in prioritizing parental training and support into our comprehensive Applied Behavioral Analysis therapy program. We welcome the input that the child’s parents provide, and supply them with the tools they need to support the learning and communication skills their child is learning into their life at home.

Here are some basic suggestions that parents may find helpful in navigating their journey with their ASD children:

  • Let your friends and extended family members know about your child’s diagnosis; don’t keep it to yourself. The caring and support you’ll receive is a valuable resource.
  • Consider joining a parent support group, or perhaps the special education PTA in your child’s school district. This can yield valuable connections, especially with parents of children with a similar diagnosis as your child’s.
  • If there is an autism walk or related events sponsored by a nonprofit organization in your community, use the opportunity to gain strength from families who are navigating the same situations.
  • It’s important that you make sure to take care of yourself, not just your child. The journey will be an easier one for all if everyone’s healthy.

The Applied Behavior Analysis we specialize in at Achievement Behavior Care is widely praised as the gold standard for providing life-changing improvements in an ASD child’s learning, communication, and coping skills. Our team of compassionate, highly qualified Board Certified Behavior Analysts/Licensed Behavior Analysts deliver results that are unmatched among behavioral health agencies.
