The Present Study used parents as key stakeholders and a phenomenological approach to examine parent perceptions of Right Click, an online, telehealth training programme that supports parents in their understanding of ASD. As the Right Click parent programme is designed as self-referring and self-directed learning support; the specific research questions for this study included (1) What are parents’ general perceptions of Right Click? (2) How does Right Click support family wellbeing and parent coping? (3) How do these experiences inform receptivity of Right Click as a parent intervention?

From the interviews participants clearly see Right Click as a useful, valuable resource and recognised that, certainly for Scottish families (predominant sample) that it is the most extensive one stop resource available of its kind for parents.
