Parenting Autism & Divorce Rates
‼️Heightened risk of divorce in parents of children on the autism spectrum and ADHD are twice as likely‼️
I know your time, energy and resources are going into providing your child with the best care and support, but 3 things that negatively affect wellbeing of parents of children on the autism spectrum are:
1️⃣Uncertainty around the autism diagnosis
2️⃣Lack of public understanding and tolerance for behaviors
3️⃣Having limited resources to cope with behavioral demands of autism
➡️These things throw family dynamics off balance, and here’s how it’s negatively affecting your marriage/partnership!⬇️
When our children are younger demands on parenting are higher which naturally increases stress. 😣
We are more likely to neglect the needs of our spouse/partner…
‼️Parental stress is intensified for longer when raising a child on the autism spectrum because the high-level demands continue beyond childhood into adolescence and adulthood.‼️
Heightened risk of divorce in parents of children on the autism spectrum and ADHD are twice as likely to divorce than parents of neurotypical children because of these prolonged levels of stress.
🧐The results, from the article, “The Relative Risk and Timing of Divorce in Families of Children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder”, suggest interventions focused on improving ongoing and long term marital strains for parents of children on the autism spectrum. But how??? 🤔
This is why I created my 1:1 Coaching program to include the support of not just your child’s needs, but your needs as a parent, and your family’s needs as a whole.
🗝When meeting the needs of your entire family are considered while navigating autism, the relationships within your family dynamic are nurtured to maintain balance and connection
