New citation[edit]

I for the life of me can not find the PMID for the Jennifer Elder citation. Pubmed has the journal and the person, but does not appear to have the article abstract itself. WLU 19:01, 23 July 2007 (UTC)


I'm going to move the page to Lovaas technique - the current page name is out of keeping with WP:NAME. WLU (talk) 19:55, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

Lovaas technique[edit]

"Lovaas is a form of treatment guided by applied behavior analysis..."

"Lovaas was developed by O. Ivar Lovaas based on research performed by Lovaas and his assistants."

Are these recently made changes correct? I've never seen a research article in a journal refer to the Lovaas approach as simply "Lovaas". It's usually called the "Lovaas method," "Lovaas therapy," "Lovaas approach," or "EIBI". NighthawkJ (talk) 03:25, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

The article refers to the name Lovaas but never includes his entire name, nor has any hyperlinks to the Wikipedia article on Ole Ivar Lovaas. The first reference to "Lovaas" is in all caps, which would lead the naive reader to assume it's an acronym.drone5 (talk) 19:33, 7 January 2009 (UTC)

Recent reliable reviews[edit]

Someone with more time than I should rip out some of the lower-quality material here and rewrite it based on the following recent high-quality reviews instead:

  • Howlin P, Magiati I, Charman T (2009). "Systematic review of early intensive behavioral interventions for children with autism". Am J Intellect Dev Disabil. 114 (1): 23–41. doi:10.1352/2009.114:23;nd41. PMID 19143460. 
  • Reichow B, Wolery M (2009). "Comprehensive synthesis of early intensive behavioral interventions for young children with autism based on the UCLA Young Autism Project model". J Autism Dev Disord. 31 (1): 23–41. doi:10.1007/s10803-008-0596-0. PMID 18535894. 
  • Spreckley M, Boyd R (2008). "Efficacy of applied behavioral intervention in preschool children with autism for improving cognitive, language, and adaptive behavior: a systematic review and meta-analysis". J Pediatr. doi:10.1016/j.jpeds.2008.09.012. PMID 18950798.

Intelligence Citations Bibliography for Articles Related to IQ Testing[edit]

I see the article mentions IQ testing of children who were treated with the Lovaas technique. I have posted a bibliography of Intelligence Citations for the use of all Wikipedians who have occasion to edit articles on human intelligence and related issues. I happen to have circulating access to a huge academic research library at a university with an active research program in those issues (and to another library that is one of the ten largest public library systems in the United States) and have been researching these issues since 1989. You are welcome to use these citations for your own research and to suggest new sources to me by comments on that page. -- WeijiBaikeBianji (talk) 23:14, 2 July 2010 (UTC)

Speech/language use by people with autism[edit]

The article says, "As many as 25% of individuals with autism have no functional speech, the remainder typically display pronounced phonological and grammatical deficits in addition to a limited vocabulary.[6]" This seems very unlikely to be accurate from the current perspective that "autism" includes "Asperger's syndrome" and "high-functioning autism."

circular link in cost of care section[edit]

The link to EIBI in the Cost section should probably be removed because the similar existing EIBI page name is just a redirect to this article. Apologies for not knowing enough wiki jargon to say that more clearly. ;-) Claudia (talk) 15:37, 18 December 2016 (UTC)
