Increasing Early Diagnosis of Autism: Exploring Awareness and Pathways to Information Seeking Among Parents

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Using a survey of parents of young children (N=686), this study examines key determinants
related to health-related information seeking about early diagnosis and treatment of autism
spectrum disorders (ASDs). It also explores the role of perceived stigma associated with autism,
as well as attitudes toward treatment related to autism. Findings indicated that problem
recognition and involvement positively predicted information seeking and processing.
Relationships among other variables are discussed, along with theoretical and practical
implications.
