Tuesday, February 26, 2019
11:00 AM–11:50 AM

  • PMD: 6,7
  • Skill Level: Intermediate

Learner Objectives

This session will help participants…

  1. learn how knowledgeable the general and parent populations are regarding ASD.
  2. learn the difference in knowledge between parents with and parents without a child with ASD.
  3. learn how practitioners can use the ASKSG to develop and implement targeted parenting interventions.


Children with ASD have the most beneficial outcomes when they receive early intervention services. A lack of knowledge regarding ASD in the parent population may contribute to the delayed identification and intervention services for children diagnosed later. This presentation reports on the development and validation of an ASD knowledge measure for the general and parent populations and examines how knowledgeable these populations are regarding ASD.
