The PLAY Autism Intervention Program is a parent-mediated intensive intervention program that helps young children with autism improve their language, development, behavior and social skills. Parents/caregivers learn techniques and activities so they can support their child’s social-emotional growth during everyday activities. This approach empowers parents and gives children intervention at a high intensity level. PLAY Autism Intervention is one of several parent-mediated approaches; however, the PLAY Autism Intervention model has undergone one of the largest and most rigorous research studies of its kind. The results of a three-year randomized controlled trial, published in the October 2014 issue of the Journal of Developmental and Behavioral Pediatrics, confirmed significant positive outcomes for children with autism and their parents who participated in the PLAY Autism Intervention program.
