10 Facts About Autism in Adults
Article and Photo by: Verywell Health

Most articles and images focus on young children when it comes to autism, making it easy to overlook autism in adults. While it's true that symptoms of autism appear first in early childhood, autism is not a pediatric disorder. Those with the condition, like everyone else, are adults for much longer than they are kids and face lifelong challenges.

So why is relatively little written about autism and adulthood? While there's no absolute answer, here are some educated guesses:

  • Autism manifests before age 3, so most new diagnoses of autism are in children.
  • Most people who actively read about autism are worried-but-hopeful parents or guardians of children who are or may be autistic.
6 Parenting Styles to Avoid When Raising a Child With Autism
Article and Photo by: Verywell Health

Bringing up a child with autism can be both challenging and rewarding. Children with autism don't communicate, play, or behave like their neurotypical peers, and their behaviors can be confusing, frustrating, or frankly upsetting to some parents or guardians.

At the same time, children with autism have strengths and abilities that can only emerge when a parent is tuned in and willing to engage in a way that works best for their child. This means that, when you have a child with autism, it's not always best to just go with what feels natural to you as a parent or guardian.
