Abstract

Nepalese Female Community Health Volunteers’ (FCHVs) knowledge on social attention and communication development and the early signs of autism was evaluated before, immediately after, and 12-months following training on typical and atypical social-communicative development in infants/toddlers, early signs of autism, and monitoring of key “markers” of autism using Social Attention and Communication Surveillance. FCHVs (N = 60) significantly improved their knowledge about autism and reported increased perceived confidence in monitoring and referring young children at high likelihood of autism following training, which was sustained one year later. FCHVs also reported a positive impact of training on their work. These findings indicate the effectiveness of training in improving FCHVs’ knowledge and perceived confidence to monitor and refer young children at high likelihood of autism.
