A randomized control study of relationship focused intervention with young children with ASD  

The increasing numbers of children being identified with autism spectrum disorder before they are three years old calls for the development of effective interventions for this age group of children. This project will conduct a randomized controlled study of a parent-mediated developmental intervention that can be implemented with children with autism spectrum disorder before they are three years old. Pre- and post-intervention assessments will determine the impact of this intervention on children's development and social emotional functioning as well as on several psychosocial characteristics of parents and families.
