Importance of Intensive Behavioral Therapies
Dr. Joseph Buxbaum discusses the importance of intensive behavioral therapies for children with autism. He explains that many studeis have shown that children make profound progress after receiving intensive behavioral interventions. Dr. Buxbaum further explains that brains have the most plasticity at younger ages, making intervention during these time periods critically more powerful than at later ages.
"...we do think that every child on the autism spectrum needs to get intensive behavioral therapies. The evidence suggests that the earlier the intervention the better..."
