Abstract

Students with autism often have behaviors that are unusual and can be disturbing to teachers and students who do not understand this disorder. To help these students grow and develop, it is critical to communicate with the parents and to involve parents. The education of a child with autism can be a source of considerable concern to parents regarding school placement decisions, the levels of classroom support provided, and the attitudes and behaviors of teachers. This study examined parent's satisfaction with the education of their child with autism. Thirty-two parents of children with autism completed a 64-item questionnaire designed to assess their attitude of their child's education; right to involvement, identity, perceived capability of involvement, perceived involvement, self-efficacy, satisfaction, perceived climate and beliefs about inclusion. The results revealed that parents strongly agreed that they have rights to involvement of their child's education.
