Parents of children newly diagnosed with autism spectrum disorders are a high-need population for whom skills-based parenting interventions likely help. Diagnostic centers are compelling locations to deliver parenting interventions because families are served in an accessible location and at a time they receive overwhelming treatment recommendations. Additionally, behavioral interventions in these settings may be especially effective in helping parents feel an early sense of mastery of disruptive child behaviors and enable families grappling with this diagnosis to be proactive and build resilience. Providing parenting interventions in diagnostic centers is a promising service delivery innovation and deserves expanded piloting and testing.
