Autism can be hard and challenging to both affected individuals and parents or carers. It’s a disorder that requires tons of attention most especially on one’s welfare and maintaining the quality of life.
You might have read stories from parents and patients online, and how they’ve described their differences and how they cope up with such conditions.
For most Autism patients, the feeling of exclusivity among counterparts or co-existence is a hurdle to leap, climb, or whatever adjective you could think of to describe “challenges.” Meanwhile, for parents, the situation can be emotionally and physically exhausting.
There are tons of intervention groups one can find online to assist in such situations. Dedicated online service like TAP or The Autism Plan functions to provide parents and carers with the armory they need to cope up.
The Autism Plan had prepared a list of useful materials on different cases of autism for parents and carers. Nicola Powell, a member of the team who started TAP, discussed that the basis of TAP is providing accessible information, resources, and most importantly, empowering support plan that parents need.
TAP’s support team dedicates itself in focusing on strengths rather than the weakness autism brings to families. Instead of seeing autism as a disorder, the team empowers confidence between parents and autism patients to improve quality of life further.
A family with autism patients may be subject to a set of vulnerabilities. But, one can still enjoy life with support groups that focus on empowering and improving the quality of life autism brings.
