Sibling-mediated social communicative intervention for children with autism spectrum disorder  

The purpose of this project is to develop and obtain preliminary evidence of the efficacy of a sibling-mediated intervention designed to improve the social communication skills of young children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The aim is to develop and test the sibling-mediated intervention for young children with confirmed or suspected autism spectrum disorders in terms of social communicative outcomes at home and in community settings.

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.
