Abstract

Although research in autism has grown more sophisticated, the gap between research knowledge and applicability of research in real world settings has grown. There have been a number of different reviews of evidence-based practices of treatments for young children with autism. Reviews which have critically evaluated the empirical evidence have not found any treatments that can be considered evidence-based. Reasons for this shortcoming are explored, and a new method for the evaluation of empirical evidence is provided. Future uses of this evaluative method are provided as well as a discussion of how this tool might aid in narrowing the research to practice gap.

With regard to the treatment of single subject research, our concerns are twofold; some definitions did not allow single subject studies to be used in the determination of EBP (Francis 2005; Shavelson and Towne 2002), and no definition of EBP that included single subject research provided a way to synthesize research across both group and single subject research (Kratochwill and Stoiber 2002; Lonigan et al. 1998; Lord et al. 2001; Odom et al. 2005). Because much of the research on treatments for young children with autism uses single subject research methods (see Odom et al. 2003), we feel it is imperative that single subject research be included in a definition of EBP used to review treatments for young children with autism.
