Some tips for new parents who have child with autism
Parenting can be tiring, tedious and challenging. But with the right guidance and planning, it can be fun too. If you have a child with autism, your parenting journey will be a little different. But remember, patience is the key to raising a healthy, intelligent and smart child. So when you have a child with autism, make sure that you put in your best efforts to raise them.
Unlike earlier days, today’s parents are more accepting about their child’s disability. They realise that with right therapies and treatments, their child with autism will have a great quality of living. They do not fear social stigma and are spreading awareness about disabilities which is great. So even new parents are accepting their child’s disability and providing them with nothing lesser than the best therapies and educations.
Autism is lack of social skills, difficulty in communication and repetitive behaviour. As soon as your child is diagnosed with autism, accept it and start providing them with right therapies. Initially, it can be hard. But the more time you take to accept it, the more time you waste. Most of the new parents are hearing about autism for the first time only when their child is diagnosed with it. So understand about the disorder better and reach out for help. Find experts and talk to other parents of children with autism. I’am stressing that mothers are the best therapists and love is the ideal therapy for children with autism- Smrithi Rajesh, parent of child with autism

“Once your child has been diagnosed with autism, start training them from then on. Children with autism can do things independently with the right guidance. Teach them to do things so that parents do not have to worry about it later on in life. Focus on the positives and stay consistent on schedules. Follow routines. It helps a lot”, says Grace, Psychologist and parent of child with autism
