Kien Trung Nguyen [2] | Phuong Hoang Nguyen

Abstract: The lack of knowledge about autism affected the timely detection as well as early treatment in autistic children. Therefore, our goal was to assess the knowledge in the community in Hanoi, Vietnam. A cross-sectional survey was conducted on a total of 489 subjects participating in the study. Data collection was developed based on previous studies on assessment of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) knowledge and was revised and adjusted by psychologists and public health experts. We observed all subjects also heard about ASD. However, the percentage of people who have sufficient knowledge of ASD was relatively low. There was the relationship between knowledge of ASD and educational level (p-value < 0.05).
