Description

Description

The purpose of this study is to analyze baseline parent and student data, collected from 200 families of children with autism who are newly entering the preschool early intervention system, to determine the associations between parent characteristics and children’s early intervention placements. The results will have important implications for understanding disparities in placement and potentially in child outcomes. This study will also contribute to a larger study upon which the independent project is based in order to examine: 1) What are the most promising intervention practices upon which to build in the community early intervention settings? 2) Which combinations of community placements and interventions are most effective? 3) How does the effectiveness of these settings and interventions vary based on the characteristics of the child?

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.
