What Parenting a Child with Autism is Like

Not every child with autism is the same. Some function quite well and others do not even learn to speak. But finding out your child has autism, no matter where they are on the spectrum, is challenging and it continues to be a challenge to parent well.

Recently, I wrote about how parents of children with autism need grace from others. This video is a great video because 1) it helps explain autism and 2) it depicts what it's like to parent a child with autism. I hope you'll watch it.
