Abstract (Summary)

Advocating, Supporting, Developing (ASD) is a self-directed curriculum aimed toward helping foster parents of children diagnosed on the autism spectrum. Foster parents may complete the curriculum on their own, or choose to work collaboratively with other family members, child welfare workers, and service providers who work and care for their child. As a self-directed curriculum, the design aims to: (a) accommodate foster parents’ busy schedules; (b) facilitate learning at one’s own pace; (c) skip or go back to sections that are particularly helpful; and (d) provide a convenient and comprehensive guide that enhances parenting abilities.

The goal of Advocating, Supporting, Developing is to provide foster parents with the knowledge and skills needed to care for children with autism spectrum disorder so they have the ability, resources, and willingness to meet their safety, well-being, and permanency needs.
