Description

Do parent-mediated interventions (PMIs) work for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD)? This poster presentation will provide an update of the effectiveness of PMIs for children with ASD with improvement in the methodology of prior meta-analyses. Results indicate that parenting interventions are more effective than comparison groups. Participants will learn the extent to which PMIs are effective in treating ASD and which study, intervention, and participant characteristics moderated the effectiveness of PMIs.
