This includes ALL EBSCOhost databases, so if you use this database you may not need to use the Multiple EBSCOhost Databases link on the Communication Disorders guide.
Don't forget about the Age option on the left menu of the search results page!
autism AND family assessment = 43
autism AND caregiver = 2514
autism AND concerns NOT early = 237 (I'm trying to find a way to separate parental concerns right after initial diagnosis and much later)
autism and adolescence AND problems = 680
autism and adults AND problems = 2425
autism AND adulthood AND caregiver = 34

REMEMBER: Just because Wiley provides a pdf link does NOT mean McFarlin has full-text access to the article. If you click on the pdf link and Wiley prompts you to pay for the article, don't do it! Instead, get the name of the journal and date of the article, go to our Journal Titles page, search for the journal, and determine if we have a subscription to that journal for the date you need (don't forget to check the Print or Microform at TU Libraries link). If we don't have it, ILL the article.
autism AND caregivers = 2985
autism AND parental concerns = 4424
autism AND parent AND child rearing = 1610
This may be good:
Seltzer, M. M., Shattuck, P., Abbeduto, L. and Greenberg, J. S. (2004), Trajectory of development in adolescents and adults with autism. Ment. Retard. Dev. Disabil. Res. Rev., 10: 234–247.
REMEMBER: A green box to the left of the article information means we have full-text access in this database. A white box to the left of the article information means we do NOT have full-text access in this database - we may have full-text access in another database or in print at the library. Please double-check our Journal Titles page for additional methods of accessing the article before requesting an ILL.
ALSO: This database uses brackets instead of quotation marks to indicate searching a phrase (how clever of them).
autism AND parental concern = 2748

ProQuest (including dissertations)
