Parents' detection of early signs in their children having an autistic spectrum disorder

Sivberg, Bengt LU (2003) In Journal of Pediatric Nursing: Nursing Care of Children and Families 18(6). p.9-433
Abstract
cThe study aimed to describe parents’ views of their early perception and detection that something was wrong with their child and to give a comprehensive description of early signs to help primary health care nurses to focus on relevant symptoms. Participants were 66 parents from a total of 37 families, a population-based sample from a Swedish county. Interview data were analyzed by manifest content analysis. The results indicated a few critical periods: around the birth, early speech development, and school start. The diagnosis of autistic spectrum disorders was delayed. The parents’ reports were congruent with earlier observation studies.
