Research and Case Studies

Although single case study designs continue to be done and continue to show gains for children with autism disorders, AutPlay Therapy would benefi t from more controlled studies. More research across various practitioners is needed to scientifi cally validate AutPlay Therapy and show AutPlay Therapy as an evidence-based treatment approach for children and adolescents with ASD and other developmental disabilities. It is important to note that AutPlay Therapy infl uences are approaches rich in research that have shown success in treating children and adolescents with ASD and other developmental disabilities.
