Puberty can be a challenging time in life for any parent, but what can it mean for a child diagnosed with autism? How can a parent best prepare for the changes?
Parents often feel lost and unsure about where to find information to help navigate this life stage. This brief presentation will introduce some core concepts about the social and emotional changes that occur during and after puberty. Strategies and resources that are practical and useful for parents will be reviewed. Come and join us for this lively topic!
