Raising any child is hard work and when your child has autism it is all the more challenging. I see so many parents educating themselves and working hard to care for their children and these efforts are making a difference. They deserve to be recognized and commended for their hard work. So I wanted to just take the opportunity to tell parents with children who have Asperger’s Syndrome that we appreciate all of your tireless efforts.
You think it can only happen in the movies, but sadly that’s not the case.
Parents need support and training to keep their own lives and emotions balanced when they care for the special needs of a family member. If you’re feeling like it’s more than you can handle, contact my office and make an appointment in Portland, Oregon or Vancouver, Washington.
