Treatment and Education of Autistic and Related Communication Handicapped Children (TEACCH) is one of the Comprehensive Treatment Models (CTM) interventions that have been implemented since the 1960s for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). TEACCH uses structured teaching so that it has an impact on increasing individual independence. Intervention with this approach is still widely applied in schools and therapy centers. In recent years, researchers have begun to prove the effectiveness of the TEACCH approach not only on children but also on parents. However, experimental studies examining the outcomes of these interventions in parents and children with ASD are still limited and there are not many studies that summarize research results and provide recommendations regarding the use of the TEACCH intervention. This literature review aims to provide a summary of the results of experimental studies that apply the TEACCH intervention for parents and children with ASD, so that they can be considered by professionals and further research. A literature review was conducted on two experimental studies from 2019 and 2016, involving parents and children under 8 years old. The results of the study showed that the TEACCH intervention was able to improve social skills and emotional regulation in children and parents. In addition, it can also reduce the stress experienced by parents and improve well-being. Both studies suggest that increasing intensity may affect outcomes.
