Researchers in the United Kingdom followed about 60 parents who participated in a specific intervention, the Preschool Autism Communication Trial (PACT), when their children were between 2 and 4 years old. They also followed a similar number of parents who did not receive the training, who served as a control group. The children could participate in other therapies.
