Perception about autism among parents with autistic child: Qualitative study

Author(s): Norah Banafi and Raji Kaliyaperumal

Abstract: The goal of this study was to determine how parents with autistic children felt and thought. The participants in this qualitative study are four parents. The data gathering tool was demographic data, with the theme being their feelings and how they are dealing with situations in their daily lives. The majority of the parents stated that they had little knowledge of autism, its causes, or how to handle the illness. They stated that they had a lot of difficulties with the children because of the autism, and they didn't know whether or not to seek medical help. Parents believed the disease was curable until they learned it was not and that they should manage their lives with their autistic child rather than accept it. Parents have expressed concern that while they are currently caring for their child, who will care for the child once they are gone is their greatest concern.
