Abstract

Although, reviews and outcome research supports empirical evidence for Early Intensive Behavior Intervention in pre-scholars, intensive behavioral service provision for school-aged children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are less subject to research studies. In order to provide effective behavioral interventions for school-aged children it was first necessary to comprehend key variables that are common to empirically validated programs and to tailor the to the needs of older children and their families in community settings. The proposed Comprehensive Behavioral Model "Una Breccia nel Muro" (UBM) includes individualized assessment and skill building, treatment provision in inclusive setting and cross-service collaboration, parent inclusion and support, and intensive training for parents, staff as well as school teachers.
