Vallari Thombrey | Namita Joshi | Meet Nakum


Abstract: The pandemic has led to increased screen time in children, resulting in minimal play or no play with others. Parental involvement in their children's language development is crucial, and evidence - based approaches like parent child interaction therapy have been used to improve communication skills. A study included 12 parents of children with mild autism aged 2 - 5 years. The Parenting Interactions with Children: Checklist of Observations Linked to Outcomes (PICCOLO) tool was used to evaluate parent - child interaction via tele - mode. Parents were trained and counseled on the importance of parent child interaction and were followed up for six months. The study found significant short - term and long - term changes in parent - child interaction in parents of children with mild ASD, as well as a positive correlation between PCI post - training scores and language scores. The study emphasizes the importance of parent child interaction therapy in improving communication in children with ASD.
