Comparative Effectiveness of Therapies for Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders

Slide: 31 of 36

Conclusions (1 of 2)

There have been encouraging advances in the promotion of early diagnosis and intervention for ASDs. Since this is a young field, existing studies need to be replicated and expanded. Evidence on the comparative effectiveness and safety of most specific interventions for children with ASDs is limited and inconclusive. There is some evidence to guide choices among early intensive behavioral interventions and medical interventions for challenging behaviors. Little evidence exists to guide choices among medical interventions for social or communication symptoms. There is little or no comparative evidence upon which to make decisions about behavioral, educational, allied health, and CAM interventions.
