Parenting & family support
Parent & sibling sessions
Maybe you have found that many of the parenting “tips and tricks” that other parents share don’t seem to work with your child. Parenting an autistic child can cause isolation from other parents, stress on marital relationships, financial stress, family conflict, and stress for siblings.
Parent sessions can provide a space to process the emotional stress of parenting and the expectations you have of your autistic child. Parenting sessions can be an opportunity to discuss strategies and help both parents get on the same page in terms of how to best support your child. It can also be helpful for a clinician to help make sense of your child’s behaviors or challenges; we find that this helps build empathy and patience, facilities communication within the family, and helps identify the most effective parenting strategies. We also provide support to siblings who need their own space to talk through the impact of having an autistic sibling.
