Abstract

This study investigated the long-term follow-up of an information communication techonology based intervention, the Therapeutic Outcomes By You application, for children with autism spectrum disorder living in regional Australia. Fifteen participants who completed a three-month randomised controlled trial of the Therapeutic Outcomes By You were assessed at least 12 months post-intervention to determine the maintenance or continued improvement of their language and social communication skills. Findings demonstrate the receptive language, social skills, pragmatic language and playfulness of children with autism spectrum disorder improved during the three-month intervention period and were maintained at least 12 months after ceasing the Therapeutic Outcomes By You app intervention.
