"Psychosocial development of children with autism. Accompaniment of the parents in the care of a child with autism in the daily life."

We are studying parents’ rôle in the care of children with autism in the every day life. Autism is a serious developmental disorder for children characterised by both difficulties of communication and social interactions,  as well as at their level of interests and particular behaviour.Sensory sensitivity and emotional regulation are also disrupted.  Autism is currently a public health problem in both developed and developing countries. The aim of this study is to contribute to the improvement of the quality of relational life of children with autism, by using the therapeutic methods adapted for them in Belgium, and by adapting them to the realities of the Democratic Republic of Congo.
End date : June 2018
