Engaging with a child on the spectrum can be difficult. It requires patience, meeting the needs of a child with autism, and can increase a mother’s stress level, making them easily frustrated. If a mother is struggling mentally, emotionally, or financially it can be hard to nurture an autistic child. When parents have difficulties communicating with their children about their basic needs, most autistic children need help for daily activities and need more supervision than other children. Fortunately, there is help available to ease stress and learn strategies to use with your autistic child.
