Abstract: 
intelligence quotient (IQ) and adaptive behavior are the influencing factors of ASD in children entering mainstream schools. This study explores the association between parental education level, IQ and adaptive behavior in autism spectrum disorder (ASD) groups. A total of 257 school-age ASD children were enrolled in our study from January 2017 to June 2021. Their parents completed a standard demographic form, including age at autism diagnosis, gender, school placement, and parents' educational background. The Chinese version of The Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children 4th edition (WISC-IV) was completed by a certified assessor for each enrolled child. Parents were interviewed on adaptive behavior using the Chinese version of The adaptive behavior Assessment System for children, Second Edition (ABAS-II). The average IQ of school-age ASD children was 76.88 (SD = 22.62) and males had a higher IQ than females. The IQ was positively correlated with age. The General Adaptive Composite (GAC) score was 82.47 (SD = 15.86) and adaptive behavior did not increase with age. ASD children who attended mainstream schools had better adaptive behaviors than other children. The mother's education level showed a significant correlation with the IQ and adaptive behavior of autistic children, while the father's education level did not. The parents’ educational level, especially the mothers’, may be related to the IQ and adaptive behavior of autistic children. Consequently, better training and support for parents may help autistic children enter mainstream schools, with adaptive training being the most urgently required skill for parents.
