The paper discusses an article from the Journal of Positive Behavior Interventions that shows how there are very few public schools who include parent training as part of their early childhood special education (ECSE) curriculum. The authors recommend that future empirical studies are needed to determine both the short-term and long-term effects of adding such a program to ECSE curricula for autistic children. The paper asserts that this suggestion is appropriate and it should be carried through, to make sure there is a long-term upside to getting parents involved at such an intense and personal level. If there is a well-publicized long-term benefit, future parents and teachers will be more willing to participate.

From the Paper:

"The family itself benefits when parents are deeply involved in their autistic children's care and maintenance, because knowing what to do with the child puts less stress on the family, and as a result parents have more optimism, more free time, and are encouraged to continue working with their child.
"But, first, special education teachers must be "provided with explicit instruction" as to which strategies to teach parents, which coaching skills are most beneficial, and how to work with families, the article points out."
