Caring for Caregivers

Did you, caregivers of individuals on the autism spectrum, generally experience higher levels of stress, anxiety, and depression when compared to families of typically developing children and children with other disabilities?

Caregivers like Niranjan Wimalasena usually feel alone and isolated when dealing with the complexities of raising a child with complex needs. But programs like SAAAC CARES support caregivers by targeting the social, emotional, and psychological challenges that can arise among caregivers of children with autism. The CARES program provides a safe space for caregivers to share their experiences and develop a sense of shared identity as caregivers.
