National Autism Center Releases Groundbreaking Report on Autism Treatments
Date:9/22/2009

treatments came from behavioral literature (i.e. applied behavior analysis, behavioral psychology, and positive behavior support). The report also identifies limitations of the existing autism treatment research and encourages the scientific community to more aggressively pursue targeted treatment research.

"The National Standards Project will provide guidance, encourage families and service providers to make informed decisions, and promote the use of evidence-based treatments," said Patricia Wright, Ph.D., MPH, National Director of Autism Services for Easter Seals, Inc., and one of dozens of individuals and organizations from around the country who are expressing support for national standards. "With the implementation of these standards, our outcome will be citizens with autism who move into adulthood with increased skills and the ability to contribute their talents to our diverse communities."

The National Autism Center is disseminating the results of the National Standards Project in order to provide families and professionals with better tools to make treatment decisions to meet the needs of individuals with ASD in their care.

"Families have waited a long time for something like the National Standards Project, which will provide direction for parents and educators so they can be confident in their decisions and not waste valuable time and money on unproven treatments," said Lisa Borges, Executive Director of The Doug Flutie, Jr. Foundation for Autism, Inc.

The National Standards Report is available for download on www.nationalautismcenter.org.
