Abstract

Raising a child with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) can be very challenging for most caregivers. The demands of raising a child with autism can result in marked psychological distress for the caregivers(1). They are affected in many ways including increased feelings of depression, anxiety and stress(2)(3). However, there is still very limited awareness and support resources available for raising a child with ASD(4). Therefore, more information is needed in order to translate research into practice and evidenced-based treatments.
