Can This Service Be Accessed Virtually / Remotely?
The purpose of this study is to explore the feasibility, acceptability and efficacy (effects) of internet-based approaches for delivering information about early intervention strategies (e.g. methods or tips for improving a child’s behavior and development) to parents of young children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). As part of this study, families will be randomly (selected by chance like the flip of a coin) assigned to one of two different formats of an interactive telehealth program called Mirror Me Online. One format you complete on your own, the other involves the option to meet with a parent coach over the internet for feedback. The goal of the study is to understand the efficacy of internet-based approaches on how parents/caregivers and children benefit from using online programs, and to identify barriers (blocks) and facilitators (helpers) to this kind of service delivery model.
