The lack of Specialist and provided services to children who diagnosed with Autism makes parents in trouble to choose an appropriate program for them (Mackintosh, Myers & Goin-Kochel 2005). When you type the word “Autism treatment” on google search engine, parents will find themselves drowning in a sea of information and neither its sources nor its methods are known. We have tens of therapeutic methods and publicized programs on internet and social media, but no one knows whether it’s useful or harmful for ASD children. Therefore, their families could be exposed to financial exploitation (Matson, Adam, Williams, & Rieske 2013).
The goal of our workshop is to train the parents to identify publicized therapeutic methods that are not supported by evidence-based research, in addition to identifying evidence-based therapeutic methods, as well as how to choose appropriate methods for their child.
To further the goal of our workshop, we will use collective interactive activities, as well as displaying the scripts.
