Every parent wants his child to be happy and have a successful life. As a parent of an Asperger’s Disorder child, you have a far greater challenge than other parents. You are the key to your child’s happiness and success.
The more help you provide your child, the greater his chance for a happy childhood and adolescence and a good future as an adult. You have a responsibility to do all you can for your child. Having a child with Asperger’s Disorder means sacrificing time, effort, emotions, and money to give him the best life possible.
As a parent of an Asperger’s Disorder child, the first step to take to help your child is to acknowledge the difficulty you are faced with and accept that you need professional guidance. You are not expected to know how to raise a child with a disorder. There is no shame in getting help, only in refusing to admit that you need it.
