Effect Size Matters: a Mini Master Class in Autism Intervention

 

https://www.thecarlatreport.com/podcast/effect-size-matters-a-mini-master-class-in-autism-intervention/

As clinicians we are often faced with questions from families about the “best” program for autism intervention. While children with autism may receive a range of services including speech and language therapy, occupational therapy, and social skills help, the anchor to most programs is some form of behavioral health treatment. The latest issue of The Carlat Child Psychiatry Report includes an interview with Dr. Micheal Sandbank, who’s an assistant professor of special education at the University of Texas, Austin. Dr. Sandbank specializes in early childhood special education, and she and her colleagues published a systematic review and meta-analysis that has taken the Autism research community by storm. In this podcast, Mara and I will discuss Dr. Sandbank’s research and three main approaches to autism intervention. 

This deep dive podcast breaks through the dogma of autism intervention and helps you to understand the three main branches of autism intervention and their very different mechanisms, the quality of autism research with a huge shift in our understanding of what works, and addresses such questions as how many hours are really needed for intervention?
