378-379), but, given the many strengths that their study also had, they appropriately concluded that the results provide evidence for the efficacy of EIBT. Their innovative community-wide collaboration, comparison of EIBT with other services of equal intensity, and favorable EIBT outcomes stand as significant achievements.
Further, two recently published EIBT studies are reviewed and evaluated relative to their compliance with these guidelines.
In the next section, we examine two prominent, recently-published EIBT studies to illustrate this point.
In comparison, the Sallows and Graupner (2005) study utilized matched, random assignment, an assessment protocol more closely approximating uniformity, and sufficient detail to allow for replication, thus advancing our knowledge of the efficacy of parent-directed early intensive behavioral treatment (EIBT) as a less intrusive, less costly alternative to clinic-directed EIBT treatment.
