In one study, parenting styles between parents with autistic children and parents with non-autistic children differed greatly in responses (Strid, 2013). This conclusion leads to the fact that families who have autistic children react differently to certain scenarios. Having an autistic child within the family can lead to several different scenarios involving the child, such as having difficulty maintaining order in the household or arguments concerning the welfare of the child. However, these circumstances can also lead to the child’s family becoming much more understanding towards people with autism (Jahromi, 2012).

After examining the results of this study, it definitely appears that perception can potentially play an integral role in family relationships. Reflection and Conclusion The results of this study could be useful to share with parents of children affected by ADHD. Although the “Indigo parents” represent a unique sub-group, their positive perceptions did appear to have an impact on reported levels of stress and frustration within families. Perhaps families can utilize these results to rethink their own perceptions of children with ADHD in a positive, new light.
Introduction The current interview process is in regards to a child who is four years old and was diagnosed with autism when he was two years old. Children with autism often display deficits in language, social interaction, behaviors, and sensory and perceptual processing (Case-Smith & O’Brien, 2010). Therefore, the purpose of the current interview is to investigate the child’s overall needs, strengths, and weaknesses in regards to the child’s specific condition to gain an in-depth understanding of the child. The goal of the interview is to collect thorough information about the child to allow the practitioner to gain an understanding of the child and parent’s needs for therapy. Furthermore, the interview facilitates rapport between the practitioner and the child and parent and expresses the practitioner’s desire to understand and empathize with the child.
Having not only seen numerous children with autism, but also growing up with a younger brother who has autism, the author of this paper wonders - what are these coping methods? Which ones are most effective? And why are they so important? What is autism? Autism, as defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary, is “a variable developmental disorder [...] characterized by impairment of the ability to form normal social relationships, [...] to communicate with others, and by stereotyped behavior patterns” (Autism).
This paper will review five studies concerning the behavior and development of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. The studies investigate how autism effects communication, socialization, cognitive development, and a number of other areas. Researchers use many different types of scales to measure and compare the difference between children with ASD and typically developing children. Methodology Study 1 Morgan, Lindee, Wetherby, Amy M., Barber, Angie (2008) Repetitive and stereotyped movements in children with autism spectrum disorders late in the second year of life In this study there were three groups of children between 18 and 24 months of age participated. One group had Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), another group had developmental delays (DD) but autism was ruled out, and the third group had a typical development (TD).
Parents of children with autism often suffer from stress and anxiety. Dealing with children with autism places extraordinary demands on the shoulder of parents that can be added over the usual parental daily work and responsibilities. Compounding the needs and work load of the family members to the responsibilities of raising a child with autism can be multiplied and easily create a hectic situation where parents feel the pressure under such circumstances and suffer psychological symptoms that can be overwhelming to both parents and siblings of children with autism. Children with autism suffer a myriad of social, behavioral, and language abnormalities. An individual with such a dense profile can have a huge impact on the normal functioning of the family.

The Experiences And Perceptions Of Social Support By Single Mothers Of Children Diagnosed With Autism Spectrum Disorder Introduction This study will explore the single mothers perceptions of social support relative to raising a child diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder. It will use a qualitative framework with grounded theory methods. Two well-researched stressors exist that affect the lives of single mothers of children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder: parenting a child with special needs and being a single mother. Boss’(2002, 2006, 2008) theory of ambiguous loss, the ambiguity about a family member’s presence or absence in the family system, served as some of the constructs for this study. A sample of 16 single mothers with a child or children diagnosed with autism in school-age special education programs ranging from 3 to 21 years of age will take part in an in- depth, semi structured interview utilizing an interview guide based on the literature of mothers with children with autism and single motherhood.
