Salt et. al 2002
Main Issue: Outcomes from a developmental approach
Methods: Wait list control, per/post multiple measures including parent stress,
Initial IQ lower in treatment group (TG). Non SCA hours look greater in TG but variability is larger TG did better on VABS.
Non verbal measures better, not verbal
No difference in parent stress (power?)
Small study, but shows some effect Power to detect differences Impact of Hanen training Immediate outcomes: unclear about long term implications
