The Effectiveness of Parent Involvement in the Implementation of Intervention with Preschool Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder: A Review of Literature

By Trelaina S. Butler

Providing early interventions contributes to the success of many young children with autism as it helps them gain the skills and abilities necessary to increase their communication, independent functioning skills, and social-emotional skills; while also decreasing problem behaviors. Parent involvement in the implementation of interventions is crucial to the development of the young child, and it increases family-school partnerships. However, parents often lack support from schools and are more stressed than parents of typical developing children due to their ineffective parenting skills of children with ASD. This issue of NASET’s Autism Spectrum Disorder series was written by Trelaina S. Butler from Florida International University. Her paper supports and encourages parents to collaborate with teachers and professionals to help them implement strategies in the home setting.
