Abstract/OtherAbstract:
In this paper, the outcome measures used in intervention research with young children with autism were analyzed. Two types of literature were reviewed: reports evaluating specific intervention practices and reports of complete intervention programs. A description of the types of measures used in each literature source and measurement practices reported were analyzed and described. In addition, the intervention program literature was reviewed to determine whether factors that may mediate outcomes were measured. Finally, the literature was reviewed to identify instances in which multiple risk and opportunity factors were analyzed to account for variations in outcomes.
