Abstract
Using an online survey, this study investigated when South Korean parents of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) recognize their child’s first symptoms of ASD, receive a diagnosis and begin intervention, as well as parents’ perceptions and needs for early intervention. One hundred and sixteen parents completed the online survey. Findings revealed that South Korean parents have a high level of recognition of the need for identification and early intervention. On average, parents recognized their child’s symptoms of ASD at a median age of 29 months; received diagnosis at 43.3 months; and began intervention at 39.7 months. In contrast to Western reports, 25.9% parents received intervention prior to diagnosis. Implications for South Korea in regard to services for young children with ASD are presented.
