“Families of children with disabilities often have had a history of care, having found many ways to get by and seek help, before they come into a therapists office that are often overlooked   There needs to be greater emphasis placed on empowering families and creating room for their voice.” -Courtney

Narrative therapy can set the stage for any person or family to make sense of

  • How ASD impacts their life
  • In what ways negative effects can be limited
  • How a sense of agency can be fostered
    • Agency is the sense that every person has the ability to act in purposeful, intentional ways to regulate, shape, and intervene in their own life
      -White, M. (2007). Maps of narrative practice. New York, NY: Norton.)
