The objective of this research was to examine how parents adapt to the behaviour of their autistic children. What steps do parents make to accommodate the conduct of their autistic children? Knowing the elements that support and impede the efforts of parents to adapt to the behaviour of children with autism is essential to the process. This study employs qualitative descriptive research methodologies. This research relies on primary data sources gathered via in-depth interviews with parents of children with autism as its data source. The study subjects are parents with autistic children. This research concludes that adapting to the behaviour of hyperactively behaving autistic children requires a great deal of patience and time since it is difficult to manage hyperactively behaving autistic youngsters. Every day, children exert pressure on their parents. To adapt to their children's behaviour, parents give treatment via behaviour therapy and behaviour modification. Behavioural treatment consists of occupational therapy, speech therapy, and socializing via the elimination of incorrect conduct. The treatment for behaviour change comprises modelling and positive reinforcement. In the process of adapting to the behaviour of autistic children, several things serve as both supports and impediments to the parents' efforts.
