Autismul  are o raspandire din ce in ce mai alarmanta la nivel mondial. Trebuie stiut de la bun inceput ca un copil diagnosticat cu autism are nevoi speciale si o ingrijire adecvata. Nu exista leac pentru vindecarea autismului, de aceea pentru parinti este o situatie ingrata intrucat trebuie sa duca o munca pe termen lung cu copilul, o munca costisitoare si extenuanta.

Inainte de a incerca sa isi ajute copiii, parintii trebuie sa inteleaga ca psihicul si fizicul lor trebuie sa functioneze la capacitate maxima. In asemenea situatii parintii trebuie sa isi faca planuri pe termen scurt, sa nu se astepte la rezultate deosebite din partea copilului intr-un timp scurt, ci sa dea dovada de perseverenta, rabdare si realism intrucat autismul nu poate fi vindecat, ci doar ameliorat.

Oricat de pregatit se simte un parinte al copilului cu dizabilitati, de multe ori, realitatea cu care se confrunta este alta decat cea invatata din carti. Pana si unii specialisti se pot simti depasiti de comportamentul si /sau afectiunea unui copil prin prisma aceluiasi diagnostic.

Consilierea parintilor TREBUIE sa faca parte din intregul proces de recuperare al celui mic. Nu este suficient un numar de ore pe zi, copilul trebuie stimulat si invatat, controlat si corectat continuu. Insa,p entru asta, parintele trebuie sa fie informat, invatat si deschis catre experientele noi vis a vis de diagnosticul copilului sau.

Deci, dragi parinti, NU dezarmati. Inainte de a avea grija de copilul dumneavoastra asigurati-va ca sunteti sanatosi si aveti toate resursele (materiale dar mai ales psihice) pentru a-i furniza copilului cel mai bun tratament, cei mai buni specialisi si cel mai potrivit climat.

Parents need psychotherapy too

 Autism is becoming more and more alarming worldwide. It must be known from the beginning that a child diagnosed with autism has special needs and special care. There is no cure for autism, that’s why it is a tough situation for parents which implies a long term job, a costly and exhausted one.

Before trying to help their children, parents need to understand that their psyche and physique must function at full capacity. In such situations should make short-time plans and not to expect great results from their kids in a short period of time, but to show perseverance, patience and realism because autism cannot be cured, but only improved.

No matter how prepared a parent of a child with autism feels, many times the reality they face is different than the one learned from books. Even some specialists may feel overwhelmed by the behavior and/or condition through the same diagnosis.

Parental counseling must be part of the whole recovery process. Some hours per day for therapy is not enough, the child needs to be stimulated and learned, continuously monitored and corrected. But for this the parent must be informed and open to new experiences regarding his/her child’s diagnosis.

So, dear parents, do not quit. Before taking care of your child make sure you are healthy and have all the resources (material and especially mental) to provide the best treatment, specialists and the most suitable climate for your child.
