Learning that one's child has been diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) has often been described by parents as a challenging event. It frequently begins a life-long journey of discovery about the fluctuating meaning and implications of this complex behavioral diagnosis for their own child and family.
This presentation, featuring Dr. Fiona Miller, will focus on describing the range of challenges that parents report, how those challenges change over time, and strategies for coping with them. Dr. Miller is a licensed clinical psychologist who supervises and practices in the Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) program at the University of Michigan Center for the Child and the Family.
This event is co-sponsored by the U-M Institute for Human Adjustment as part of their forum series, Adjustment Matters. This series is designed to educate and inform members of the community about a range of topics related to mental health, learning, and communication difficulties.
