Caregivers - Dealing with Autism

Being a caregiver means dealing with many challenges whilst trying to stay upbeat and positive.  If you are a caregiver of a child with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) or know someone who is, you know it is not an easy task. From the early hours of the morning to late in the evening (and often in the middle of the night), caregivers are the first responders to the daily needs of their child with special needs. They are responsible for assistance with toileting, dressing, feeding, therapy, education, transportation to appointments, and so much more.  There are no weekends or holidays off for parents of children with autism, because in most cases, caregivers do not have someone who can fully take on their role.
