Samenvatting

Ouders van kinderen met autisme, met name moeders, hebben een lange en moeilijke weg moeten afleggen, voordat zij niet meer werden gezien als oorzaak van het afwijkende gedrag van hun kind. Hoewel pas in de jaren zeventig wetenschappelijk is bewezen dat zij in opvoedkundig opzicht niet afwijken van ouders van zich normaal ontwikkelende kinderen, heeft de opvatting lange tijd bestaan dat een kille opvoedingsstijl de oorzaak van autisme zou zijn. In deze publicatie zal eerst een globaal overzicht worden geboden van de blaam, die ouders van kinderen met autisme trof, alvorens ze werden erkend als liefdevolle en competente ouders. Vervolgens wordt het huidige beeld over ouders van kinderen met autisme in kaart gebracht, eindigend met een aantal adviezen voor de klinische praktijk.

Abstract

Parents of children with autism, especially the mothers, have had to walk a long and arduous path, but they are now no longer considered to have caused the aberrant behaviour of their child. In the 1970s it was proven scientifically that these parents do not bring their children up differently from parents with normal children. However, the view that a cold parenting style could be the cause of autism was still held for a long time. This publication will start with a global overview of the cloud that was cast over the parents of children with autism before they were recognized as loving and competent parents. Subsequently, the current views about parents of children with autism will be presented and will be rounded off with some advice for clinical practice.
