Controlled study

A formal evaluation of an intervention, with more participants than a pilot study. Typically it would involve two groups of participants on the autism spectrum, matched for level of symptoms, age and IQ. One group receives the intervention and the other receives no intervention or treatment as usual. Comparing the groups’ skills and behaviours after the study permits efficacy of the intervention to be evaluated.
