Autism and the Extended Family: For People Who Love Someone with Autism
The effects of autism are relentless; they occur day after day, week after week, month after month, and year after year. The strain is often overwhelming and impacts physical, emotional, and financial well-being.  Understanding these far-reaching effects can help support loved ones whose lives have been touched by autism.
Outcomes for children with autism and their families can be enhanced when extended family members learn and understand how to act as extra cheerleaders and as built-in support groups. Practical tips will be presented.
