This study aims to explore the effectiveness of parent-implemented intervention in the family of children with autism. Sixty parents with autistic children were trained with China Autistic Children's Family Rehabilitation Project CST Training Materials. Childhood Autism Rating Scale (CARS) and Bench Center Family Quality of Life Scale (BCFQOLS) were applied to access both children and parents before and after the training. Total score of the children in the experimental group was significantly lower than the pretest score. The results show that parent-implemented intervention has a positive impact on promoting the social communication ability of children with autism.
