Caregiver-Mediated Intervention for Low-Resourced Preschoolers With Autism: An RCT

Published June 23, 2014 in Pediatrics

This study is among the first randomized trials comparing 2 active interventions with a large sample of low-resourced families. Results suggest improvements in core autism deficits of joint engagement, joint attention, and symbolic play with relatively brief, caregiver-mediated interventions, but additional support is necessary to maintain and generalize these gains over time.
