Parents' and Practitioners' Perceptions of Supports, Interventions, and the Home Visiting Process Used in Early Intervention
Peck, Jason
ProQuest LLC, Ph.D. Dissertation, Iowa State University
Autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) have been considered an uncommon childhood disorder, but now they are estimated as one of the most prevalent types of developmental disabilities. Although people are more aware of ASDs, many questions remain. The purpose of this phenomenological study is to explore three issues: parents' of young children diagnosed with ASDs perceptions of supports thought to be effective in addressing stress, practitioners' views of interventions, and parents' and interventionists' perceptions of the structure of the home visit used in Early Intervention. Interviews and observations were used to collect data, and findings from this are presented in the context of existing research literature. Implications and recommendations for future research are provided. [The dissertation citations contained here are published with the permission of ProQuest LLC.
