Recommendations for Reporting Independent Variables in Outcome Studies of Early and Intensive Behavioral Intervention for Autism
Lechago, Sarah A.; Carr, James E.
Behavior Modification, v32 n4 p489-503 2008
Early and intensive behavioral intervention (EIBI) has been established as an effective treatment for autism. However, the complexity and intensity of EIBI programs make it difficult to fully report all critical aspects of the independent variable. Consequently, scientific reports of EIBI outcomes have been criticized for providing less than comprehensive treatment descriptions. In an effort to address this problem, the present article provides a template to aid outcome researchers in (a) clearly reporting each participant's curricular targets and (b) describing critical aspects of treatment.
