Change in Autism Classification with Early Intervention: Predictors and Outcomes

Authored by Itzchak, EB, and Zachor DA in Research in Autism Spectrum Disorders, Volume 3, Issue 4, p. 967-976, (2009).

Article summary (posted Sep 14, 2010):


Children with autism who have decent receptive language skills are most likely to improve with early intervention.

This study looked at a wide range of factors that might result in a change in autism diagnosis after intervention. The study focused on groups of children whose autism changed or stayed stable after intervention. They then looked to see what types of children were most likely to change their autism status. They found that the child’s age, level of skills, and parents’ ages were not linked to changes in autism status. The authors found that those children who were improved post-intervention improved in both verbal and visual skills.
