Daniels Academy, designed for males with academic or social struggles due to learning differences, announced today the publication of a new White Paper, “Rescue Your Family: Living Alongside Autism Spectrum Disorder.” The twelve-page White Paper is designed to help parents and guardians of children with Autism Spectrum Disorder, as well as teachers and friends who may know a family struggling with these issues, and anyone looking for resources on how to help children and adolescents with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their families.
Mental health issues are one of the most daunting challenges a family can face. The human mind is in many ways a mystery, and mental health issues have been taboo in our society for far too long. In the last few decades, however, we have come to understand many diagnoses in a more sophisticated way. While diagnoses like Autism Spectrum Disorder, Nonverbal Learning Disorder, and Pervasive Developmental Disorder can be frightening and overwhelming, families dealing with these conditions should know that they are not alone.
When children with Autism Spectrum Disorder and related disorders do not get the help and support they need, they are not able to be healthy members of a functioning family. Everyone has different needs, but the needs of these individuals are so specialized that they all too often go unmet. The result of this can be anywhere from chaotic to catastrophic for the family in question.
It can be incredibly painful for a parent to have a child whose needs are going unmet. The frustration of not being able to understand or connect with one’s own child is devastating. Watching them suffer emotionally, or fail socially and academically, can be unbearable. What parent wouldn’t do everything in their power to alleviate this situation?
