A literature review will be implemented, focused on the training needs of parents of autistic individuals. The needs assessment will be complemented by the organisation of a focus group with six parents in each country, moderated by two coordinators, in order to record the parents’ needs in real-time. The Needs assessment Resource document will integrate the results from the literature review & the Focus groups global report. A  paper to be submitted in a peer-reviewed international scientific journal will be prepared.
