Family Support and Parent Initiative

As parents, we often find ourselves juggling multiple roles and responsibilities. With demands from work, finances, and everyday challenges, it can be easy for us to overlook the crucial role we play in our children's lives.

In a recent interview with renowned psychologist and autism expert, Professor Tony Attwood, he sheds light on the highly important role of parents in their children's development and well-being.

Despite the complexity of autism and the unique challenges it presents, Professor Attwood believes that parents hold the key to unlocking their child's potential. He stresses the importance of parents harnessing their expertise and understanding of their child's needs, fears, and interests to create a supportive and empowering home environment.

In addition to providing guidance and support, Prof. Attwood highlights the powerful impact of parental mentorship on a child's development. He explains how parents can serve as role models for their children, allowing them to observe and learn positive behaviors and skills.
