A traumatic stress framework was identified as a valid way of conceptualising high levels of parenting stress in a subpopulation of parents raising a child with autism. An association between traumatic stress symptoms and child behaviours that posed a threat to child safety (e.g., elopement, aggression, self-injury) was found.
