Abstract

Objective: To systematically review existing evidence of studies using parent-mediated intervention training delivered remotely for parents of children with ASD living outside urban areas. Design: This systematic review met 15 out of the 16 AMSTAR 2 criteria. One criterion was partially met as limited information was provided regarding excluded studies. Search strategy: A comprehensive systematic search was conducted across CINAHL, Embase, ERIC, PsycINFO and
Pubmed databases. Selection criteria: Included studies were required to (1) be
published in English, (2) involve parents/caregivers of children with a formal diagnosis of ASD aged under 18 years, who resided outside major cities/urban areas with limited access to services and (3) where intervention involved training parents/caregivers (via various modes of telehealth remote delivery methods) in intervention skills to improve their child’s social behaviour and communication skills. Methods: 1218 abstracts were identified and screened independently by two authors against the inclusion/exclusion criteria with 90% agreement on included articles. NHMRC levels of evidence and the Kmet critical appraisal tool were used to assess the methodological quality of included studies. Main findings: The seven included studies comprised a total sample of 197 parents living in the United States, Canada or Australia. The overall quality of study design was low with: two pre/post-cohort studies, three multiple baseline design studies and two randomised controlled trials.
