Abstract
This study is an extension of research by Johnston and Wong (2002), who used a survey instrument to explore the cultural differences in parents’ beliefs about child-rearing and practices related to parent-child interaction in Chinese and Western mothers living in Canada. Their results showed differences between the two groups in the endorsement of certain child-rearing beliefs and practices. The present study explores differences in beliefs about child-rearing and talk to children in Chinese-Canadian and Euro-Canadian parents of children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Fifteen Euro-Canadians’ and ten Chinese-Canadians’ survey responses were analysed to examine patterns in responses. Stepwise regression procedures revealed significant differences in the two groups’ child-rearing beliefs and practices. Findings suggest that professionals may need to consider the implications of these differences prior to offering language facilitation strategies to Chinese-Canadian families of children with ASD.
