What is this study?

Parent involvement in intervention is important for supporting the development children on the autism spectrum or with other social communication delays.

This project is designed to better understand how Project ImPACT, a parent-implemented intervention program, works.

  • Participants will complete a phone or Zoom interview which will take about 45 minutes to 1 hour.
  • The questions will focus on your experience of Project ImPACT and how it works.
  • It will include questions about coaching practices, how children respond to Project ImPACT strategies, and how Project ImPACT fits into family life and clinical practice.

We hope that this research will help us learn how to improve Project ImPACT and make it easier to deliver in the community.
