Comparative Effectiveness of Therapies for Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders
Strength of Evidence Ratings
Throughout this slide set, strength of evidence ratings are assigned to findings of the report. Strength of evidence is typically assigned to reviews of medical treatments after assessing four domains: risk of bias, consistency, directness, and precision. Available evidence for each Key Question was assessed for each of these four domains; the domains were combined qualitatively to develop the strength of evidence for each Key Question.
