Abstract:

This study aimed to 1) describe parent perceptions of sexual education needs of their children aged 10-20 with an ASD diagnosis and 2) determine parent-preferred mechanisms of delivery for tailored educational intervention strategies. Findings contribute to the long-term goal of a program of research that seeks to develop and test ASD-targeted sexual education interventions.
