Support Needs of Fathers of Children with ASD: Individual, Family, Community and Ideological Influences
Fathers are increasingly involved in caring for children, and involvement by fathers of children with ASD is distinctly impacted by added demands of their child's diagnosis. Yet supports for families of children with ASD are not tailored to needs of fathers. We use an ecological framework to examine how fathers’ needs are influenced by contexts ranging from the immediacy of their child's behaviour to overarching expectations for good fathering.
