Earlier intervention leads to greater improvements in young children on the autism spectrum

Researchers from Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), Florida State University, and the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) have demonstrated that starting a form of parent-led intervention for autistic toddlers earlier in life led to better gains in language, social communication, and daily living skills. This is one of the first trials to show the quantitative benefits of earlier intervention for an autism-specific intervention. The findings were recently published in the journal Autism.
