Some of the parents felt that they are socially isolated and do not have the energy to maintain asocial life. In some cases,thesurrounding had a lack of patience and understanding for the families with children with autismspectrumand the family did not have the energy to keep in touch with them.The resultsalso showed that all the interviewees have previously had difficulties in the cooperation with the school butithas slowly gotten better, which may be because the mothers have to be the "annoying" parents who require their rights to theirchildren.
