The Battelle Developmental Inventory and Learning Accomplishment Profile were used to assess changes in developmental rate of preschool children with autism and their normally developing peers over one school year. Although the normally developing children were at a higher developmental level before and after treatment, the children with autism made significant gains in their relative rate of developmental progress and no longer differed from peers on these measures after treatment. The data support the notion that very young children with autism are capable of important developmental progress.
