The purpose of this study is to examine two interventions aimed at improving a child’s social, communication, and self-care abilities.
One intervention is called Early Intensive Behavioral Intervention (EIBI). EIBI involves 20 or more hours per week of one on one direct intervention that focuses on teaching skills such as making requests and playing with toys.
The second intervention is called Adaptive Modular Applied Behavioral Analysis (MABA). MABA is an individualized approach to adapting and combining targeted interventions. It starts with five hours per week of one on one intervention that focuses on social and communication skills. After four weeks, study staff will decide what tasks/skills to work on next and may provide up to 10 hours per week of intervention.

Interested families should contact the Research Team at the Center for Autism at 216-448-6392 or autismresearch@ccf.org.

Families are compensated for their time but not their travel, insurance will be charged for treatment but not for the research assessments and a stipend will be provided at assessment time points.
