Translation of evidence-based treatment to classrooms  

One assessment, the Predictive Pivotal Response Training Profile Assessment (PPPA), accurately determines which children are most likely to respond well to this evidence-based, naturalistic behavior intervention. But to date, the training required to administer the PPPA has been so time-consuming as to limit its use in clinical settings. A modified version of the original PPPA, designed specifically for autism service providers in community settings, is currently being developed. In this project, Dr. Schreibman's fellow will systematically evaluate the validity of the modified PPPA. Once validated, the modified version would allow service providers to quickly and efficiently determine if Pivotal Response Training should be included in the intervention program of a particular child.

Subcategory Behavioral
Strategic Plan Objective New! Green dot: Objective has greater than or equal to the recommended funding. 4LD. Support at least five community-based studies that assess the effectiveness of interventions and services in broader community settings by 2015. Such studies may include comparative effectiveness research studies that assess the relative effectiveness of: o Different and/or combined medical, pharmacological, nutritional, behavioral, service-provision, and parent- or caregiver-implemented treatments; o Scalable early intervention programs for implementation in underserved, low-resource, and low-literacy populations; and o Studies of widely used community intervention models for which extensive published data are not available. Outcome measures should include assessment of potential harm as a result of autism treatments, as well as positive outcomes. IACC Recommended Budget: $37,500,000 over 5 years.
