In part II of our Autism series, we’ll take a more in-depth dive into understanding behavior and learn some tools for parenting autistic youth. Parenting a youth with autism or a spectrum-related diagnosis often looks very different from more traditional parenting styles often used when raising children. Coupled with the trauma that autistic children may have experienced, it can be even more difficult for caregivers to know how to intervene and how to parent.

For many caregivers, the behaviors, reactions, and emotions that are involved with parenting autistic children, can become overwhelming and stressful. In this session, we’ll discuss behaviors associated with Autism Spectrum Disorders in children while discussing some practical tips and strategies for parenting autistic spectrum children.
