The OT-ParentShip protocol is a multidimensional intervention for parents of adolescents with high-functioning autism. Results from a pilot study display a significant improvement in adolescents’ participation and heightened parental resilience.

OT practitioners can benefit from this structured protocol, which enables parents to achieve their prioritized goals.
