Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v30 n2 p137-42 Apr 2000
The predictive power of age and IQ at time of admission to an intensive behavioral treatment program for young children with autism were examined in a 4- to 6-year follow-up of educational placement. Results with 27 children showed that having a higher IQ at intake and being younger were both predictive of later placement in a regular education class. (Contains references.) (Author/DB)
