University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill – a new report based on a review of 29,000 articles identifies the most successful, evidence-based interventions for children and teenagers with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD).

Frank Porter Graham from the Child Development Institute (FPG) and director Samuel L. Odom co-headed the new review.

They say that more children than ever are being diagnosed with autism.

“We’re catching them earlier, with better tools, and these children need the right services.”
