Applied Behavior Analytic Interventions for Children with Autism: A Description and Review of Treatment Research

Authored by Granpeesheh, D., Tarbox J., and Dixon DR in Annals of Clinical Psychiatry, Volume 21, Issue 3, p. 162-173, (2009).

Article summary (posted Jun 10, 2010):


It may help children with autism if psychiatrists learn about applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy and learn how to work with ABA therapists.

Most autism therapies have not been studied using evidence-based scientific research. This article reviews ABA therapy for children with autism and the research that supports its use. The article also describes how ABA can be used with psychiatry. The authors note that the most gains are found when ABA is used 30 to 40 hours per week as per the early intensive behavioral intervention model. The early intensive behavioral intervention model is also known for working on all areas of functioning where the child has problems.
