Effectiveness of ASD Evidenced-Based Practices for End-Users: Examination of Child Outcomes in Multiple Community Service Settings

The purpose of this panel is to describe research examining the community effectiveness of evidenced-based interventions (EBIs) for youth with ASD implemented in multiple community-based settings. These studies share a common focus of examination the effectiveness of several EBIs developed to enhance child outcomes in routine care settings, with an additional focus on key moderators (e.g., age, race/ethnicity). Focused on early intervention settings, the first project described the impact of a parent-mediated naturalistic developmental behavioral intervention adapted for use with toddlers at risk for ASD on child and family outcomes. The second project describes the impact of an adapted behavioral intervention designed for implementation in school settings. The third project examines the effectiveness of a behavioral EBI implemented in publicly-funded mental health settings. Finally, the fourth project examines the measurement of clinical outcomes across several community care settings. Dr. Lauren Brookman-Frazee (discussant) will draw on her expertise in implementation and evaluation of EBIs to synthesize the results and offer recommendations for the use and examination of EBI implementation to improve community service settings, especially among diverse populations.
