Watch this video about a family meeting the challenges of autism… by working and playing together. These suggestions for “building up” your own family may help:
- Think about the role each member of your family plays. What are each person’s strengths? Put them to use! (A sense of humor helps, as do lots of hugs!)
- Make sure all children have the chance to just be children.
- Create opportunities for each family member to do things in different configurations: all together, one-on-one with a parent, and just with friends.
