Video: Family life with children with autism spectrum disorder

3-12 years

In this short video, parents of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) talk about day-to-day family life. They discuss the value of planning and structure, explaining the schedule and giving their child with ASD a breakdown of events. One mum says this ‘gives him a roadmap of what his day is going to look like’.
