The Impact of Autism Spectrum Disorder on Family Dynamics: A Literature Review

This issue of NASET’s Autism Spectrum Disorder serieswas written by Erica Williams-Sanders from Florida International University. The literature review describes the effects of Autism Spectrum Disorder on families as a whole when a family member is diagnosed with Autism.  Autism changes the dynamics of the family from diagnosis and for the rest of their lives. Everyone in the family: parents, siblings, grandparents and so on, deals with the effects of Autism in different ways. Counseling and other resources are needed for these families; however, they are limited for some depending on finances, culture, and demographics.
