Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) cases have increased worldwide. The family supports are crucial for the development of children with ASD. This study aimed to identify the support from the family toward children with ASD. A descriptive study was conducted involving 14 family members who had children with ASD. The variables of this research included informational, judgmental, instrumental and emotional support. The informational (92.8%), emotional (85.7%), judgmental (57.1%) and instrumental (85.7%) supports from families to children with ASD were good. Future research should undertake the study with a larger sample and examine them using different variables.
