Abstract

The Review was commissioned by the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaHCSIA) to provide up to date information about the evidence for efficacy of interventions for young children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) up to the age of 7 years. Ratings of the scientific merit of the intervention research, according to internationally established scientific criteria for evidence of treatment efficacy, were obtained. An update of the current understanding of what constitutes good practice in
autism intervention was requested taking into account new research published since 2005/6 when the first review and guidelines were published by the Department of Health and Aging.

Recommendations from this report were designed to inform the processes used by FaHCSIA to assess the eligibility of interventions, and the suitability and capacity of potential providers to deliver effective autism early interventions under FaHCSIA’s Helping Children with Autism (HCWA) Package.
