Longitudinal Studies of IQ Stability in Children with Childhood Autism – Literature Survey

Authored by Begovac, I., Begovac B., Majic G., and Vidovic V. in Psychiatria Danubina, Volume 21, Issue 3B, p. 310-319, (2009).

Article summary (posted Sep 21, 2010):


Therapy that is started intensely and early may be able to raise the IQ of children with autism.

This literature reviewed looked to see whether IQ changes or stays the same in children with autism. All of the studies reviewed in this article looked to see the effect of a certain therapy on IQ score. The authors found that most children with autism are first diagnosed with an IQ between borderline intelligence to mild mental retardation. The IQ score that was most often measured was the total IQ (as opposed to an IQ subscore such as verbal IQ). Most studies found that the IQ score stayed the same even after the therapy.
