Building Strong Families

Interdependence is larger than relationships between individuals. It’s also about the ways that we build networks and systems. The basic unit of interdependence is a family. Families come in a wide variety of types, sizes, and structures. This section of the initiative will help you translate your healthy relationships into a family system. We’ll discuss topics including parenting while autistic, resources for siblings of autistic individuals, the role of genetics in autism, and the ways that family relationships change over time.
