In this short video, parents discuss the challenges of raising a child with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). They talk about the financial burden and the strain on relationships between partners. Parents say they need to keep learning about ASD and adapt to their children’s different needs. As one mum says, ‘I need to parent my children differently, and that’s hard’.
Parents in this video refer to Asperger’s disorder. This diagnosis has been replaced with a single diagnosis of ASD.
