Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

This systematic review evaluates the effectiveness of interventions at improving activities of daily living (ADLs) in children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorders. Overall, moderated evidence supported family-based interventions and strong evidence supported individual, therapist-led interventions targeting ADLs. However, specific intervention approaches and ADL outcomes were heterogeneous, making cross-study comparisons difficult.
