Comparative Effectiveness of Therapies for Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders
Key Question 7: Treatment Approaches in Children under Age Two at Risk for ASDs
Research on young children is preliminary, with only four studies identified. One good-quality randomized clinical trial suggested benefit for the use of the Early Start Denver Model in young children with improvements in adaptive behavior, language, and cognitive outcomes. Overall, the body of evidence related to this Key Question does not provide any guidance on whether any intervention improves outcomes in children who are under age 2 years and at risk for ASDs.
