New Zealand Autism Spectrum Disorder Guideline: Supplementary evidence on applied behaviour analysis

Summary

The New Zealand Autism Spectrum Disorder Guideline was published in 2008. As part of their commitment to the implementation of the Guideline, the Ministry of Health and Ministry of Education agreed to establish a Living Guideline process. This process is where a guideline is regularly updated and refined to reflect new evidence and changing user needs. Each update is reported in a comprehensive supplementary paper.

This supplementary paper to the New Zealand Autism Spectrum Disorder Guideline considers the use of applied behaviour analysis (ABA).

This supplementary paper updates the evidence considered in the first edition of the ASD Guideline. Also reported are revised and new recommendations pertinent to the topic developed by the Living Guideline Group following consideration of the reviewed evidence. These revisions have been incorporated into the 2nd edition of the Guideline, published in 2016, available at New Zealand Autism Spectrum Disorder Guideline.

The supplementary paper was informed by three reviews. Two are separate technical/systematic reviews produced by the New Zealand Guidelines Group, and by a consortium of New Zealand academics with expertise in ABA. A third is an updated synthesis of that material and more recently published systematic reviews.
