Being Blamed for Your Child's Autism

When a child is diagnosed with autism, parents often face misplaced blame and judgment from society. This can be incredibly hurtful and isolating. It is important to remember that autism is a complex neurodevelopmental disorder and there is no one cause. Blaming parents for their child's autism is not only insensitive but also scientifically inaccurate. Parents of autistic children need support and understanding, not blame.
