The aim of this video-tutorial, is to clarify all the doubts about what it means to have in the family a person with the diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder. We are going to explain the characteristics, definitions and capacities that they have, and above all, the support that these people and their families will need at different stages of their lives.
Throughout my experience as a therapist, I’ve realized that it is very important to educate families, to have the opportunity to work in their homes, in the very environment of the person, it helps the objectives of the therapies to be fulfilled at a much faster pace, if we count on the help and involvement of the families, but in order to be involved and to be Co-therapists, a training process, that is not always available, is often necessary. The vast majority of books, texts, articles and manuals are aimed at health professionals, are very dense, with too much technical information that often confuses rather than help.
This course will be a very useful tool for parents, grandparents, siblings, educators and anyone interested in learning more about this topic.
