The goal of the Murdoch Early Intervention Program was to replicate the intensive early intervention program designed by O. I. Lovaas for 24 to 48 mo old children with severe developmental disability and autism. This paper describes the objectives, methods, and the results as of 24 mo. Four of 9 experimental children with autism have shown signs of approaching normal levels of functioning whereas 1 of 5 control children without autism has made significant progress. Improvements in the other Ss are rated as moderate to minimal.
