Many interventions for children with autism have been proven efficacious in university-based research settings, but rarely make their way into community practice. When they do, they rarely achieve the same outcomes as observed in research trials. The gap between research and community practice requires new ways of thinking about community-research partnerships and new strategies for intervention development and implementation. This presentation will discuss findings from a large randomized trial collaboratively conducted by the University of Pennsylvania and the school district of Philadelphia, and the development of strategies to increase the use of evidence-based practices for students with autism in public schools.
