ABSTRACT

When we talk about challenges in parenting children with Autism spectrum disorder or any other disability, we automatically draw our attention towards the mothers. But it is very important to also study the father’s perspective of parenting the same child. A number of reviews and researches have been conducted on the same. The present study has been done on the basis of reviewing A Review of Fathers’ Accounts of Their Experiences of Parenting Children with Disabilities and Raising Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder: A Study on Parenting Styles and Techniques. Another article was also reviewed in the namely The Experiences of Fathers Who Have Offspring with Autism Spectrum Disorder. The conclusion drawn from the review gives us an idea of the challenges faced by the fathers when we try to implement the same in the Indian context. The limitations have also been discussed in the conclusion and research implication.
