Authored by Eldevik, S., Hastings RP, Hughes JC, Jahr E., Eikeseth S., and Cross S. in Journal of Clinical Child & Adolescent Psychology, Volume 38, Issue 3, p. 439-450, (2009).

Article summary (posted June 8, 2010):


Research suggests that early intensive behavioral intervention is the best therapy for children with autism.

The purpose of this study was to review the research on early and intense applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy for children with autism. The authors looked only at interventions based on the Lovaas UCLA/YAP model. The review covered 34 studies. The authors found a large increase in IQ and improved autism symptoms after early intensive behavioral intervention. The results suggest that a formal Lovaas treatment approach works better than a mixture (eclectic blend) of treatments.
