ACE Center: Clinical Phenotype: Treatment Response Core  

This grant provides support for an NIH Autism Center of Excellence (ACE). The University of California, San Diego ACE Treatment Core (TxC) has been established to implement an evidence-based treatment for toddlers with autism participating in the ACE projects. A specific, manualized treatment, the STAR Program, has been chosen as the foundation for the treatment. This curriculum incorporates evidence-based behavioral methods, including discrete trial teaching, pivotal response training, and teaching within functional routines, that are of documented effectiveness. This curriculum will be adapted to accommodate 2-year-old children and to include additional social goals and developmental strategies. Project Status
