The Impact of Parental Autism Spectrum Disorder on Conflict Resolution
The majority of married adults with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) remain undiagnosed, contributing significant and unexplained challenges to all spheres of family functioning.
Healthcare providers, educators and family law professionals who do not discern how parental ASD impacts conflict resolution face the risk of compounding a family’s presenting issues.
