The National Clearinghouse on Autism Evidence and Practice
The National Clearinghouse on Autism Evidence and Practice conducts systematic reviews of the current intervention literature targeting individuals on the autism spectrum. Their scientists reviewed research studies published between 1990-2017 which examined the impact of behavioral, educational, clinical and developmental practices and service models used with individuals on the autism spectrum from birth through age 22. The 2020 NCAEP EVIDENCE-BASED PRACTICES REPORT is the most up-to-date and comprehensive review of autism interventions and therapies available.
