: Research indicates that applied behavioral analysis can make significant improvements in the skills of young children with autism. A shortage of trained professionals need not keep a family from developing an effective program for a young child with autism. The key to implementing an appropriate treatment plan lies in consistency, simplicity, intensity, and precision. Home programming for a young child with autism can achieve positive results; however, a parent-driven, center-based model provides more creative use of resources by allowing for shared training, supplies, space, and fundraising. It also allows for strong mutual support and the opportunity for a greater pool of data from which to advocate.
