Title Development of an Internet-Based Parent Training Intervention for Children with ASD.
Publication Date Oct 2012
Media Count 27p
Personal Author B. Ingersoll
Abstract The objective of this project is to develop and pilot an internet- delivered parent training program for caregivers of children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). The intervention will be based on an evidence-based curriculum that uses a blend of developmental and behavioral intervention strategies during daily routines and activities. In the first phase of the project (Year 1), the focus is on developing the online parent training program. We have modified an existing evidence-based parent training curriculum to be delivered over the internet in 12, self-administered modules containing the intervention content. In addition, we developed a number of distance learning activities designed to help users master the material. Modifications were made with input from focus groups that we conducted with parents of children with ASD and professionals who work with families of children with ASD. We also developed an automated system that will allow us to deliver the content to parents over the internet. Overall, the focus group input was very positive regarding the content of the program and its ease of navigation of the online system.
