This chapter reviews the sources of stress in the lives of family members of children with autism and considers some of the ways these families cope with the stressors they encounter. In addition to examining stress in the nuclear family, it reviews the literature on how members of the extended family, especially grandparents, view their grandchild with autism. The chapter focuses on the coping strategies that family members use to solve the problems of their family and their own discomfort.
