[Research Paper or Poster Presentation] Hot topics in autism are deficits in face perception joint attention (JA) deficits & weak central coherence. It is proposed that the attachment between the mother and the autistic child should be promoted foremost and as early as possible, to improve social deficits. So, It is utmost important to promote the attachment of mother and child in the initial phase of interventions for autism. The purpose of this study was developed an Attachment Promotion Therapy Program (APT) using the attachment theory The Attachment Promotion Therapy mandates the participation of both the mother and the autistic child, and consists of focusing on improving maternal sensitivity, nurturing behaviors, attachment security and acquiring joint attention skills. On the basis of Attachment Behavior System, the 4 phases of the attachment promotion therapy was constituted. Those are phase 1 for Unconditional acceptance, sustained contacts, phase 2 for promote proximity & contact, phase 3 for maintain proximity and phase 4 for promote the children initiated interaction. Therapeutic strategies using Integrated Model of APT according to the progression of attachment behavior was used. The program was consisted with play activity centered mother-child interaction, educational activity for parents, lecture, video-feedback, and support. APT program was effective to improve the attachment behaviors and attachment security. For the evaluation of the program effectiveness, data was collected from the feedback of the mothers. Their feedback was that APTP was helpful 1) to understand children's weakness and strength, 2) to learn how to play with their children, 3) to make social network among the mothers, 4) to minimize familial conflicts, 5) to make them much more comfortable with their children. This study suggests that the Social Cognition Promotion Program might be an effective intervention for the autistic disorder children in order to promote social interaction, joint attention, requesting, imitation, social adaptive behavior and language development.
