Duke University researchers are highlighting the importance of caregiver involvement in interventions targeted for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). In pilot work, they are seeing greater gains when caregivers can continue the intervention work at home.
Why is this update great news?
When parents and caregivers are empowered to help their children, the whole family benefits. While this model of providing early intervention training is currently being tested in areas where families have less access to direct services, the trend towards teaching families how to be involved is picking up steam.
