Abstract

Although family-centered services have long been discussed as essential in providing successful services to families of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), ideal implementation is often lacking. This study aimed to increase understanding of how families with children with ASD and limited speech receive services from speech-language pathologists (SLPs). 99 parents of children with ASD and limited speech and 211 SLPs who served children with ASD and limited speech completed questionnaires measuring their experiences with the provision of family-centered services. Findings revealed that parents and SLPs differed in their views on the degree to which family-centered services were being implemented. Clinical implications and future research directions are discussed in order to promote continued growth in the acquisition of family-centered skills.
