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.
