The TEACCH Program in the Era of Evidence-Based Practice
Mesibov, Gary B.; Shea, Victoria
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v40 n5 p570-579 May 2010
"Evidence-based practice" as initially defined in medicine and adult psychotherapy had limited applicability to autism interventions, but recent elaborations of the concept by the American Psychological Association ("Am Psychol" 61: 271-285, 2006) and Kazdin ("Am Psychol" 63(1):146-159, 2008) have increased its relevance to our field. This article discusses the TEACCH program (of which the first author is director) as an example of an evidence-based practice in light of recent formulations of that concept.
