Comparative Effectiveness of Therapies for Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders
Key Question 1: Clinical Bottom Line — Behavioral Interventions
There is some evidence to guide choices among early intensive behavioral interventions. Early intensive behavioral and developmental interventions such as UCLA/Lovaas-based approaches improve cognitive, language, and adaptive outcomes in certain subgroups of children (strength of evidence: low). There is insufficient evidence to estimate the effectiveness, benefits, or adverse events from any other behavioral interventions.
