Parental Perspective of Needs
In moments of strength, when they are not so overwhelmed that they crave only sympathy, parents of autistic adolescents realize that what they want is understanding and help. Whose understanding? Everyone’s—the teachers’, the neighbors’, the corner policeman’s, and the therapists’. What kind of help? Practical help that meets the unique needs of their autistic son or daughter.
