Description

Description

This project will use a cluster randomized controlled trial to evaluate the efficacy of a comprehensive school-based intervention (CSBI) on the outcomes of elementary school children with HFASD. Compared to a control group, students with HFASD who complete the CSBI are hypothesized to demonstrate significantly greater social-communicative understanding, fewer ASD symptoms, better social skills, higher rates of peer interactions, and greater academic achievement. In addition, the potential mediating role of fidelity of implementation and moderating role of IQ and language level will be examined.

Strategic Plan Objective

Strategic Plan Objective

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.
