Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

The ParentShip protocol is a multidimensional intervention for parents of adolescents with high-functioning autism spectrum disorder. Results from a pilot study display a significant improvement in adolescents’ participation and heightened parental resilience. Preliminary feasibility supports ParentShip as a strength-based family-centered intervention program. OT practitioners can benefit from this structured protocol, which enables parents to achieve their prioritized goals.
