MARTINEZ MARTIN, M. Ángeles  e  BILBAO LEON, M. Cruz. Approaching the children' families with autism. Psychosocial Intervention [online]. 2008, vol.17, n.2, pp.215-230. ISSN 2173-4712.

It is a universally accepted fact that the presence in the families of a child with some type of physical or psychic serious handicap constitutes a potential factor that disturbs the familiar dynamics. This is because the cohabitation with a person with this type of problems can provoke important changes in the personal life of the different members - fundamentally the parents - and of the relations between them. The information shows that many children families of with autism present levels of stress, significantly higher to whom present the families with children with other disabilities. This differentiation on the effect caused by autism in the family begins often due to the uncertainties on the not harmonic evolution of the children with autism, and is kept later by the absence of a diagnosis and increases considerably as consequence of the multiple negative effects in the familiar area. The coexistence at home with a child with autism is in the habit of being very complex and families are submitted from the beginning to severe modifications of their habitual life with excessive limitations of their independence.
