A matter of perspective: the experience of daily life and support of mothers, fathers and siblings living with children on the autism spectrum with high support needs
Dr David Preece is an academic at the University of Northampton and has a background in social care and supporting children with autism and their families. In this study, he sought to gain the views of all family members in 14 families where there was a child with autism. He argues that much data on families is based on mothers' accounts and that there is far less on the views of fathers and siblings. Like other researchers, he found that the perspective and actions of fathers was different from the mothers of the children. He concludes that services need to consider how to gain the views of fathers and siblings and that this knowledge can then be used when addressing the needs of the child and the whole family.
