- Preschool children with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) who undergo ABA treatment only will demonstrate significantly better outcomes compared to an age and severity matched control group without ABA treatment.
- Preschool children with ASDs who undergo ABA in combination with risperidone will demonstrate significantly better outcomes compared to age and severity matched children who are receiving ABA alone.
- Young age, cognitive development and attentional abilities at baseline will be predictive of good socio-emotional and neuropsychological outcomes after ABA treatment.
- At baseline, children with ASDs will show significantly lower performances on measures of cognitive, neuropsychological, and socio-emotional functioning than age-matched typically developing controls.
