Evaluation of Comprehensive Treatment Models for Individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders
Odom, Samuel L.; Boyd, Brian A.; Hall, Laura J.; Hume, Kara
Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, v40 n4 p425-436 Apr 2010
Multiple dimensions of comprehensive treatment models (CTMs) for learners with autism were evaluated in this study. The purpose of the study was to provide evaluative information upon which service providers, family members, and researchers could make decisions about model adoption, selection for a family member, or future research. Thirty CTMs were identified, with the majority based on an applied behavior analysis framework, although a substantial minority followed a developmental or relationship-based model. As a group, CTMs were strongest in the operationalization of their models, although relatively weaker in measurement of implementation, and with notable exceptions, weak in evidence of efficacy.
