Description

Description

This project evaluates the Online and Applied System for Intervention Skills (OASIS) Training Program, a program that uses a Research-to-Practice Outreach Training model to teach parents of children with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) how to implement empirically-based interventions with their children. The evaluation of the OASIS program includes two studies. The purpose of Study 1 is to: (1) conduct a between-group experimental analysis of the effectiveness of the final iteration of the OASIS training program developed during a previously funded development project, and (2) conduct a within-subject analysis of the effects of OASIS on parent knowledge and skill fluency with implementation of behavioral techniques with their child, family quality of life, and child language and social engagement post treatment and during follow-up measures. The purpose of Study 2 is to assess the long-term impact of the OASIS program on parents and children who previously completed training. Study 2 continues collection of family outcome, intervention-specific, and child outcome data on families who have experienced the OASIS intervention as a part of the intervention development phase in order to obtain preliminary information about long term effects.
