Comparative Effectiveness of Therapies for Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders

Slide: 32 of 36

Conclusions (2 of 2)

The evidence on certain medical and behavioral interventions is promising across several outcomes. For most interventions, however, the evidence is insufficient to permit an estimate of their benefits or harms. This finding does not mean that these interventions are not associated with benefits or harms but that further study is required. Evidence also suggests that there is a subgroup of children for whom early and intensive behavioral interventions may elicit robust gains while others may not demonstrate marked improvement.
