A 3-part comprehensive synthesis of the early intensive behavioral intervention (EIBI) for young children with autism based on the University of California at Los Angeles Young Autism Project method (Lovaas in Journal of Consulting and Clinical Psychology, 55, 3–9, 1987) is presented. The three components of the synthesis were: (a) descriptive analyses, (b) effect size analyses, and (c) a meta-analysis. The findings suggest EIBI is an effective treatment, on average, for children with autism…

TLDR
This paper presents an overview of 5 meta-analyses of early intensive behavioral intervention (EIBI) for young children with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) published in 2009 and 2010 and concluded EIBI was an effective intervention strategy for many children with ASDs.

Early Intensive Behavioral Intervention (EIBI) for children with autism – theory and research

Autism is a pervasive developmental disorder that is a life-long disability. Although autism is called an “enigma” because many questions still remain unresolved, more than 50 years of treatment

[Behavioral intervention for preschool children with autism – outcome of parent-based Intervention].

TLDR
This model of providing EIBI appears to hold some promise, with a significant increase in the PEP-3 scores and MDI scores as well as a significant reduction in the CARS 2 scores after 1 year.

Systematic review of early intensive behavioral interventions for children with autism

TLDR
Evidence for the effectiveness of EIBI for some, but not all, preschool children with autism is provided, with some evidence that initial IQ (but not age) was related to progress.

Outcome for Children with Autism who Began Intensive Behavioral Treatment Between Ages 4 and 7

TLDR
At a mean age of 8 years, 2 months, the behavioral treatment group showed larger increases in IQ and adaptive functioning than did the eclectic group and displayed fewer aberrant behaviors and social problems at follow-up.

Early Intervention Practices for Children With Autism: Descriptions From Community Providers

TLDR
Providers report the use of both evidence-based and non—evidence-based techniques and indicate that they often combine and modify these techniques based on child, personal, and external factors.

TLDR
Evidence that EIBT can be successfully implemented in a community setting is provided, although the study was limited by the nonrandom assignment to groups.

Home-Based Behavioral Treatment of Young Children with Autism

TLDR
Treatment differed from that described in previous reports of intensive behavior therapy for this population in that it was implemented outside an academic setting and for a shorter period, though experimental subjects still met diagnostic criteria for autism or PDD.

TLDR
Most of the 14 children who participated in the study demonstrated significant gains in their language, self-care, social, and academic development, and the results indicated a change in the parents' ability to teach their handicapped children.
