Autism Parenting Strategies
A Themed Bundle of Expert Sessions from the 2018 Parenting Autism Summit
In 2018, we brought together 32 of the world’s experts on autism and parenting for the Parenting Autism Summit. They shared the most effective approaches and strategies to help kids with autism and their parents. This is a portion of that summit.
In this bundle, our experts share information about how to identify and address the issues that are keeping you from being the best parent you can be, how to accept your kids for who they are, ways to avoid the pitfalls of traditional parenting, the stages of your journey to acceptance, the importance of self-care, and how to move away from blame and shame in parenting.
Autism is a complex neurodevelopmental disorder. Understanding how to effectively accept and guide your child will make it easier to help them succeed.
If you want to effectively parent your child with autism, you need this Parenting Autism Summit Bundle.
