Based on the findings of several preliminary studies on support and services for children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and their parents in Iran, an early intervention programme called Omid was established. This programme is based on the social model of disability. To promote the Omid resource kit, which is a component of the "Omid Early Intervention Programme", a group of Iranian parents ("N"?=?39) of children with ASD at the first stage of diagnosis were recruited to ascertain their thoughts on parental engagement in the intervention programme. Parents' thoughts about the resource kit, the parent workshop and the professional visit at home were collected through notes which the parents presented to the researchers. Thematic analysis of the notes and comments showed that parental engagement in the early intervention process through a resource kit was welcomed within a society in which service provision for ASD is sparse and support for children with ASD and their parents is lacking.
