ASD and Family Relationships

A child’s autism affects every member of the family in different ways. In this workshop we give insight and strategies on topics including:

  • parental expectations of the autistic child/young person
  • worrying about siblings
  • coping with meltdowns

You will receive a Certificate of Attendance.


  • parents of teenagers and young children with ASD
  • families
