This dissertation will look at how challenging behaviour of a child with autism can affect the family. There are several affects which can happen to a family with a child with autism. These affects need to be defined, as to properly im-plement different services which can benefit families greatly and help reduce any negative affects. The methodology which shall be used to achieve this, is a case study. One family and One manager were interviewed in a semi struc-tured interview. The results were then collected and correlated to form a com-plete case study. The findings that were discovered showed that isolation was a large issue for parent. This was down to receiving stigma from the public on how there child was just being naughty. Furthermore having isolation from their extended family because of the child’s challenging behaviour. It was also found that it has a large affect on the siblings. This is down to them having to mature faster, and being tasked with the responsibility of helping out with the care of the sibling. It also can produce a concept of younger siblings mimicking the older sibling. With all the affects of challenging behaviour on parents out-lined, there can now be recommendations on services to help such as support groups to help tackle isolation and some of the other affects.
