Alliance Member Autistica, the UK’s autism research charity, has just published an evidence summary on parent-led video feedback therapy. This is a new a form of therapy to support young children on the autism spectrum build long-term communication skills and is now ready to be used across the NHS.
The evidence summary recommends that all local areas should have health professionals accredited to deliver PACT, the leading type of these interventions. For World Autism Awareness Month help share this new evidence with your local providers, commissioners or Autism Partnership Board.
