The BOOST-A™ trial was registered with the Australia and New Zealand Clinical Trial Registry (#ACTRN12615000119594). The trial conformed to the National Statement on Ethical Conduct in Human Research (National Health and Medical Research Council 2007b) and the Australian Code for the Responsible Conduct of Research (National Health and Medical Research Council 2007a).
Study data will be placed on the Cooperative Research Centre data repository when the trial is finalized.
A process evaluation was conducted to determine the effectiveness, usability, and barriers and facilitators related to the Better OutcOmes & Successful Transitions for Autism (BOOST-A™), an online transition planning program. Adolescents on the autism spectrum (n = 33) and their parents (n = 39) provided feedback via an online questionnaire. Of these, 13 participants were interviewed to gain in-depth information about their experiences. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and thematic analysis. Four themes were identified: (i) taking action to overcome inertia, (ii) new insights that led to clear plans for the future, (iii) adolescent empowerment through strengths focus, and (iv) having a champion to guide the way. The process evaluation revealed why BOOST-A™ was beneficial to some participants more than others.
