Abstract

Parents have been trained to implement many of the most common early interventions used with children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Parents have unequaled access to their children and, in many cases, may be the most efficient and natural intervention agents. However, parent implemented interventions have also been identified as a source of stress for some families and obstacles, such as limited time, may preclude effective parent-implemented early intervention (EI). The purpose of the current chapter is to selectively summarize research related to parent-mediated EI for young children, ages 12–60 months, with or at risk for ASD, and to offer suggestions for practice and future research. The chapter is organized into the seven sections of (a) overview of parent involvement in early intervention; (b) targeted parent skills and desired outcomes; (c) parent education and training methods; (d) training parents to address core symptoms of ASD; (e) summary and suggestions for future research; (f) implications for practice; and (g) conclusion.
