Project Title

Using a direct observation assessment battery to assess outcome of early intensive behavioral intervention for children with autism

MacDonald, Rebecca

Description

Description

The purpose of this research is twofold. First, the researchers propose increasing the number of both typically developing children and children with autism assessed using a direct observation assessment tool. Secondly, they propose to analyze both new data samples as well as data from a 10-year longitudinal sample of performance of young children with autism at entry and at yearly intervals. Performance in play, joint attention, stereotypy and cognitive skills will be examined to determine outcomes for children with autism enrolled in an early intensive behavioral intervention program. Performance will be compared to direct measures taken for typically developing same-age peers, but additional interest will be taken in the examination of within-group variables that may influence outcome such as age at intake, length of intervention and initial performance on a direct assessment battery.

Strategic Plan Objective

Yellow dot: Objective has some degree of funding, but less than the recommended amount. 1LB. Develop at least five measures of behavioral and/or biological heterogeneity in children or adults with ASD, beyond variation in intellectual disability, that clearly relate to etiology and risk, treatment response and/or outcome by 2015. IACC Recommended Budget: $71,100,000 over 5 years.
