My research project aims to 1) examine an impact of various family variables such as ethnicity and culture on interaction with support systems and intervention effectiveness for their children with ASD, and 2) investigate in-service preschool, kindergarten and elementary teachers' knowledge of the core ASD characteristics and evidence-based practices in relation to teachers' attitudes to inclusion of children with ASD, experience and educational background.
