Christine Weiss Share Strategies for Parents with Autistic Children
Updated: Apr 25
Parenting is a tough job and becomes even more challenging when a child is diagnosed with autism. Parents of children with autism often face many challenges, such as behavioral problems, communication difficulties, and social isolation. However, there are strategies that parents can use to help their autistic children and make the parenting experience more manageable.
Christine (Chris) Weiss, author of the book “Educating Marston: A Mother and Son’s Journey Through Autism,” has gone through similar routes when raising a child with special needs. As they selflessly shared in their book, the personal struggles of the parents of a child with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) can primarily be understood by those going through a similar experience. That was the general idea behind the book – “to serve as an information booklet for those needing guidance,” says Chris Weiss.
