NAPP-evaluation of New Zealand ASD parenting programme (NAPP): Pilot study of the feasibility, acceptability, and outcomes of the incredible years of parent programme for preschool children on the autism spectrum or with language delays (IY-ASD)
28th International Conference on Psychiatry & Psychology Health
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is among one of the most frequent and
severe neurodevelopmental disorders adversely impacting children and
families??? daily functioning, quality of life and adaptive long-term outcomes. The
developments of early interventions, specifically group-based parent interventions,
have been recognized to have significant positive effects on child behaviour and
development, parent mental health and family???s well-being. This pilot trial aims
to assess and describe the feasibility, acceptability, and impact of the incredible
year???s parent program for preschool children on the autism spectrum or with
language delays (IY-ASD) in New Zealand. The IY-ASD is designed for parents
of young children on the autism spectrum or with social communication delays.
The main study aims are to provide initial evidence about; feasibility in terms of
participant retention rates in the programme and the usefulness and sustainability
of implementing the IY-ASD skills (i.e. social and emotion coaching, preacademic
coaching and school readiness, interpersonal and self-regulation skillsbehaviour
management); IY-ASD parent acceptability and satisfaction with the
IY-ASD skills and outcomes; and changes on parental stress and depression and
child behaviour adjustment. This study recruited caregivers of children aged twoeight
years old with ASD from two child and adolescent mental health services,
analyzing data with respect to outcomes of children and their parents at three
assessment time points (pre and post-intervention and follow-up). This study will
also report the parental perceptions and experiences about the IY-ASD, derived
from parent interviews.
