Objectives

  1. Understand that autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are neurodevelopmental, highly heritable disorders. Parenting behaviors do not cause ASD.
  2. Understand that there has been a relative lack of careful investigation into the role of parenting behavior on the development and functioning of children with ASD, especially in comparison with the vast body of literature on parenting effects on typically developing children. Evidence increasingly shows that parental behavior plays a role in the development of children with ASD just as it does with TD children.
  3. Understand that many infants at genetic risk are also exposed to parents who have deficits in some of the same domains as the children, e.g., shifting sets, generating novel responses, potentially further impacting parent-child interactions and development from a very early age.
