Parent education for Macedonian families living with autism spectrum disorder: the ESIPP project

David Preece, Jasmina Troshanska

Research output: Contribution to ConferencePaper

Abstract

Educating parents of children with ASD about the condition benefits both child and family. However, such programmes are typically unavailable in Southeast Europe. To address this, the ESIPP project developed, provided and evaluated education in autism to over 330 Croatian, Cypriot and Macedonian parents. A parent education curriculum and locally differentiated materials were developed, as well as recommendations for European policymakers. This paper describes and discusses activity undertaken within the project to develop and deliver training to Macedonian families.
