Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

The study identified parents’ perspectives on the effects of activity-based interventions and parent involvement on social interaction skills in children with autism. The qualitative and quantitative data indicate that parents perceive improvement in the social behaviors of their children following activity-based group sessions in which the parents are actively involved. The study supports the value of activity-based intervention and the impact of social environment on occupational performance.
