Samadi, Sayyed Ali; Mahmoodizadeh, Ameneh
Early Child Development and Care, v184 n3 p354-369 2014
Omid early intervention resource kit containing information booklets on autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and related issues, five packs of tangible selected playthings and communication facilitating aids was developed and evaluated with 65 Iranian parents. Beside a pretest before the resource kit deliverance, parents in the control group took part in a two-day workshop. Parents in the control group were also visited at the middle of the study and re-evaluated three months after the resource kit usage. Post-testing comparison showed a statistically significant improvement for parents and their children in experimental group. Findings support usefulness of the resource kit as a practical approach to meeting the needs of parents after the diagnosis of ASD for their child in a country with scarce support and services.
