Video 5: What is Autism Caregiving Really?
The video turns the spotlight on the primary caregivers who lie at the centre of the autistic individuals’ ability to survive and grow.
Reflect on the caregiving hero syndrome that could be preventing caregivers from leading fulfilling lives independent of their caregiving responsibilities.
Learn about self-care tips that are part and parcel of enabling caregivers to recharge and serve as positive role models.
Finally, confront the most challenging question of all: “Who will care for my autistic loved one when I am gone” and recognise the need to support the autistic individuals’ achievement of psychological independence.
