Living With Autism - results from a recent study
Worry, concern, apprehension, anxiety, lost sleep,
fret, uneasiness – universal feelings every parent
encounters when it comes to caring for their
children. Imagine life as a parent of a child with
autism and how such feelings compare and, very
likely, compound. What fears do families have for
their children’s future? What supports do they need
to better cope, plan and live with autism?
A new Easter Seals study closely considers and quantifies just that. The following details overall results and key findings, and offers a sampling of the powerful sentiments parents of children with autism shared with Easter Seals for the Living with Autism Study.
A detailed presentation of data collected during the Living with Autism study is available here.
