Parents of Children With Autism Spectrum Disorder
For individuals in the U.S. & U.S. territories
In Parents of Children With Autism Spectrum Disorder, V. Mark Durand demonstrates his positive parenting approach to working with mothers and fathers of children who have been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
ASD is an increasingly common diagnosis among children, and symptoms such as repetitive behaviors and communication deficiencies can challenge parents, often affecting their personal relationships and daily activities. The evidence-based approach demonstrated in this video focuses on increasing a sense of hope in these parents.
In this video, Dr. Durand works with a single-mother of an 8-year old boy with autism spectrum disorder. He helps her see that how she thinks about herself and her son impacts on her relationship with him at home. He then helps her focus on seeing the improvements she has seen in her son's behavior over time, and encourages her to take credit for these positive changes.
