Abstract: Parent involvement is extremely important in the development of children with autistic spectrum disorders. There is a direct correlation between problem behaviors in autistic children and the level of dissatisfaction in parents. It is hypothesized that by teaching parents techniques to avoid the development of problem behaviors, the level of parental satisfaction as well as a better parent-child relationship will emerge. Parents will be taught by behavioral specialists how to work with their children to develop positive behaviors. Success of this method will be based on a before-and-after consultation and survey given to the parents. Conclusions will be based on the results of the experiment as well as the parent surveys.
