Congratulations to Dr Adrien A. Eshraghi (University of Miami) and his team for getting us over the line with this paper aimed at determining the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic’s social environmental changes on parental ratings of their own and their autistic child’s concerns about family conflict, opportunities for social interaction, and loss of institutional support. The increased level of parental and child-perceived concerns over the course of the pandemic suggests a need for improved service delivery for these families.
