Impact of Parental Beliefs and Behaviors on Children With ASD

Children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) have language and social-pragmatic deficits that make communication difficult. Parent must learn to adapt to their child’s unique needs since their interactions are vital to the child’s success. This journal self-study explores parent attitudes and beliefs about their preschool and school-age children, as well as how parent interactions may affect the communication skills of a child with ASD. Clinicians working with children with ASD will benefit from understanding parent concerns, beliefs, attitudes, and interaction styles and can use this knowledge to engage parents more effectively in their child’s treatment.
