Classroom-Based Early Intervention for Toddlers With Autism

Principal Investigator: Rebecca Landa

The proposed project seeks to continue research into the impact of early intervention targeting interpersonal synchrony on the process of social and communication development in toddlers with non-familial autism, which was the focus of our 03-04-29-04: Early Detection, Intervention and Neurobiology in Autism: Early Intervention Portion study. This study will attempt to replicate the findings of the 03-04-29-04 study, as well as increase the power associated with its statistical analyses of the social and communication changes measured in assessments before intervention, after intervention, and six months later ("follow up").
