Parenting an autistic child is a full-time job, no doubt about it. Very anecdotally, it is mostly mothers who stay at home to take of their autistic children.
I work full-time—teaching Latin and ancient Greek at a college in New Jersey—and sometimes the balancing act gets interesting (this morning, for instance, when I was rushing to get Charlie on the bus so I could rush off to teach a 10am class……).
Are you an SAHM of an autistic child? A working mother?
