Project Area: Early intervention-effects of behavioural approaches.
Lead Researcher: : Prof Bob Remington
Institution: Southampton University
Description: The University of Southampton study was part-funded by Research Autism and was designed as a test of whether EIBI for children with autism is beneficial in routine use in the UK when compared with standard pre-school provision.
Impact: This project reported that EIBI can be an effective and practical intervention for pre-school children with autism in the UK. It also showed that EIBI can lead to a number of significant improvements in children's capacities without negatively affecting the psychological wellbeing of their parents.
