The Learning Program for the Development of Autistic Children (LPDAC) intervention program is a comprehensive cognitive approach designed to treat cognitive deficits in children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). It has been documented to be one of the most effective instructional programs for autism in South Korea. This program, however, has not been implemented in English-speaking countries. The purpose of this study was to investigate parents' perspectives of the efficacy of this intervention program. Two hundred and six Korean parents participated in this study by responding to a written interview questionnaire. A great number of parents mentioned the intervention program's effects, observed their children's developmental progresses, and believed completion of the intervention would result in positive future outcomes for their children. This study provides a brief description of the LPDAC intervention program. (Contains 2 tables and 2 figures.)
