Clinical phenotype: Treatment response core  

Treatment Core (TxC) has been established to implement an evidence-based treatment for toddlers with autism participating in the Autism Center of Excellence 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.
