The contribution of child, family and environmental factors in explaining participation

of school-aged children with Autism Spectrum Disorder in home and community.


The purpose of this study is to describe the participation patterns of school-aged children with ASD, ages 6 to 12, and to ascertain the factors that affect these patterns. Specifically, we aim to estimate the extent to which factors related to the child (i.e., complexity of child’s condition), the family (i.e., socioeconomic status, mothers’ actual participation), and environmental factors (presence of barriers and supports), can explain levels of children’s participation in home and community activities. Our main outcome focuses on participation frequency (how often) and involvement (how immersed the child is in the activity) and the type and number of activities to which parents would like to see change.
