Research on Interventions for Children and Young People on the Autistic Spectrum: A Critical Perspective
Humphrey, Neil; Parkinson, Gill
Journal of Research in Special Educational Needs, v6 n2 p76-86 May 2006
Developing, implementing and evaluating programmes of intervention for children and young people on the autistic spectrum are challenging endeavours. In this paper, we adopt a critical approach to research in this area, and attempt to offer an alternative perspective for understanding and interpreting empirical evaluations. We outline and discuss theoretical, methodological and practical issues and limitations associated with the current research body, and provide illustrative examples of gaps in the current literature.
