Parent-mediated vs. center-based intervention for toddlers with ASD: An RCT

Principal Investigator

Landa, Rebecca

Description

Description

This randomized controlled trial will compare two different early intervention approaches for minority and underserved toddlers with autism spectrum disorder (ASD): 1) a home-based model emphasizing caregiver-mediated intervention (including one-on-one therapist-provided intervention serving the dual purpose of promoting child development and modeling for the parent); and 2) a combined model emphasizing center-based professional-mediated intervention (including parent training). The study will evaluate the relative impact of these two interventions on social and communication development of minority and underserved toddlers with ASD and on their primary caregivers.
