A recent study on child psychology brought a ray of hope to the parents of autistics. The study, published in the Lancet suggests if parents interact and spend time with their autistic kids regularly, it can improve their children’s ability to communicate because the child-parent bonding reduces the severity of the disease. The study further states that parents should be trained through customised learning modules and packages on autism in order to bring out changes in their kids.
