Families and caregivers of individuals with ASD can experience a range of stressors. At times these stressors can feel overwhelming and, as a result, may increase the risk for experiencing crisis. Crisis occurs when there is an imbalance between the number of demands in one’s life (e.g. child behavior, family problems, and health problems) and the availability of external resources available to meet these demands (support, emergency services, and finances). (Weiss, Wingsiong, & Lunsky, 2014, p. 991).
