Parent coaching intervention program based on the Early Start Denver Model for children with autism spectrum disorder: Feasibility and acceptability study
A parent coaching intervention program was launched in a Quebec community-based organization for autism spectrum disorder. This initiative was intended to support families following the child’s diagnosis, as they awaited public early intensive behavioral intervention services. The parent-mediated intervention program, based on the Early Start Denver Model, included a 3-hour parent group training, an initial assessment followed by the development of an individualized intervention plan, 8 weeks of live coaching, a final assessment to evaluate children’s progress, and a feedback meeting with families. The present study used a mixed method design to assess the feasibility and acceptability of the program. Ten families (ten mothers and three fathers) and four coaches participated in the present study. Parent and coaches perceived and achieved high levels of implementation overall (91%) and there was a moderate improvement of parents’ teaching skills. All participating families and coaches were satisfied or highly satisfied with the program and found it acceptable.
