What Parents Can Do to Support Optimal Development of a Child with Autism Spectrum Disorder
Children on the autism spectrum face many challenges, but appropriate therapy makes a major difference in their longterm adjustment and learning. There also are many practical things parents can do to support their child’s development. Vanessa Slivken, Senior Director of Autism Services at St. David’s Center for Child & Family Development, joins Marti & Erin for an encouraging and helpful discussion of the important role of parents – and the importance of care and support for parents – of children with ASD.
