Objective: This study aimed to (1) investigate whether provision of a home-based program in addition to a center-based program improves development in young children with disabilities and coping abilities of their families and (2) describe the characteristics of children and families who benefit most from the intervention. Methods: Fifty-nine children, aged 3–5 years, with no cerebral palsy, participated in the study. Half of the group was randomized to receive an additional program in their… Expand
One-year follow-up of the outcome of a randomized controlled trial of a home-based intervention programme for children with autism and developmental delay and their families.
TLDR
Improvements following the provision of a home-based programme to preschool children with developmental disabilities were sustained 1 year later, reinforcing the importance of involving families in early childhood intervention programmes. Expand
Adjunctive sensory integration therapy for children with developmental disabilities in a family-based early intervention program
TLDR
The findings revealed the potential effect of adjunctive SIT on children's development and the authors hope that the data can provide a reference for early intervention strategies for children with DD. Expand
Pilot study of a school-based parent training program for preschoolers with ASD
TLDR
Investigation of a parenting training program designed for early intervention and early childhood special education programs serving students with autistic spectrum disorders suggests that this intervention can be feasibly implemented in public EI/ECSE settings, filling an important gap in services for intervention programs serving children with autism. Expand
The effect of adding a home program to weekly institutional‐based therapy for children with undefined developmental delay: A pilot randomized clinical trial
TLDR
Early intervention programs are helpful for children with developmental delay without defined etiology, and the addition of structured home activity programs may augment the effects on developmental progression. Expand
Cooperative parent-mediated therapy for Italian preschool children with autism spectrum disorder: a randomized controlled trial
TLDR
Findings of this RCT show that CPMT provide an additional significant short-term treatment benefit on ASD core symptoms, when compared with active control group receiving only LPI. Expand
Effectiveness of Interventions for Children With Autism Spectrum Disorder and Their Parents: A Systematic Review of Family Outcomes.
TLDR
Recommendations include an emphasis on family measures other than parental stress and a greater focus on measures of parental and family functioning in all future studies of pediatric interventions to more fully understand the impact of interventions in a wider context. Expand

Efficacy of applied behavioral intervention in preschool children with autism for improving cognitive, language, and adaptive behavior: a systematic review and meta-analysis.
TLDR
There is inadequate evidence that ABI has better outcomes than standard care for children with autism, and Appropriately powered clinical trials with broader outcomes are required. Expand
Parent-mediated early intervention for young children with autism spectrum disorder.
TLDR
This review found that two significant results were found to favour parent training in one study: child language and maternal knowledge of autism and intensive intervention was associated with better child outcomes on direct measurement than were found for parent-mediated early intervention. Expand

Intensive Behavioral Treatment at School for 4- to 7-Year-Old Children with Autism
TLDR
Results suggest that some 4- to 7-year-olds may make large gains with intensive behavioral treatment, that such treatment can be successfully implemented in school settings, and that specific aspects of behavioral treatment (not just its intensity) may account for favorable outcomes. Expand

TLDR
Jennifer Couper, who is both a paediatrician and the mother of a child with autism, presents a timely, well reasoned, and persuasive argument that Intensive Behavioural Intervention (IBI) should be more widely available for children with autism and their families in Australia, and that this treatment merits public funding for its implementation.
