Literature in the ASD field has highlighted the need for a more effective framework of disseminating evidence-based interventions into the community. Research has also demonstrated that social networks play critical roles in the spread of health-related knowledge and resources. The SDP talk will examine the social networks of parents of children with ASD in order to determine the role that key social network variables play in the uptake of both evidence-based and non evidence-based interventions. Given that parents of children with ASD are particularly influential in choosing services and advocating for their child’s needs, understanding the current spread of ASD intervention to parents will allow for more effective models of disseminating intervention-related information into the community.

This talk is part of the Social Psychology Seminar Series (SPSS) series.
