The ABLLS-R is a criterion-referenced assessment specific to preschool-aged children with autism. 66% (10 of 15) of families receiving Behavior Consultation services and 75% (6 of 8) of families enrolled in the CCA clinical therapy program will demonstrate a decrease in their level of stress with a reduction in three to four symptoms related to the stress of parenting a child with ASD. Level of stress will be assessed using the Parenting Stress Index (PSI).
