Abstract/Description: Via a phenomenological, qualitative research approach, this study aimed to gain a better understanding of the experiences shared by parents of boys with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs). Specifically, 7 parents of school-age boys with ASDs were interviewed for this study in order to gain insight into parents' shared perceptions of the challenging behaviors of their children and how those behaviors affect their perceived stress. The study further explored how parents describe coping skills that might mitigate the relationship of parent stress and challenging behaviors in children with ASDs.
