Assessment of the Efficacy of a Program to Improve the Social Communication and Behavior of young Children with ASD

Maria Olga Escandell, José Juan Castro Sánchez, Maria del Sol Fortea Sevilla

Resumen


Numerosos estudios ponen de manifiesto los beneficios de la atención temprana para la buena evolución de los niños con trastornos del espectro autista (TEA). La mayoría de las intervenciones diseñadas para personas con TEA se centran en una única metodología exclusivamente. Este estudio plantea un Programa de Intervención Temprana Combinando (en adelante CEIP) empleando diferentes metodologías con evidencia científica: Early Intensive Behavioral Interventions (EIBI), Early Start Denver Model (DENVER), organización espacio-temporal (TEACCH), sistemas aumentativos de comunicación (PECS, Comunicación Total, SPC), estrategias conductuales y entrenamiento a padres. Este CEIP contempla la intervención sobre las áreas típicamente afectadas en TEA: socialización, comunicación, simbolización y flexibilidad comportamental, repercutiendo en una mejora significativa del comportamiento de los niños, reduciendo las conductas problema y mejorando la comunicación social.
