Abstract

The prevalence of young people diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) has increased significantly in Chile, with most studies investigating its impact on the nuclear family - leaving the impact and influence of this phenomena on the extended family to be overlooked. This qualitative study explores the whole family experience of a child diagnosed with ASD, from the perspective of parents, siblings, grandparents and uncles.
