Applied behavior analysis was born in the United States, where it remains the most developed evidence- based intervention for people with autism. European countries have never managed to catch up, and countries in the Far East are only now slowly discovering evidence-based practices for autism. This presentation will introduce what educational practices for children with autism look like in the Czech Republic and Thailand, and the role that PATTAN technology could play in these countries. It will further highlight the first challenges and successes that these projects have encountered, as well as current developments that might help develop or hinder the spread of effective evidence-based practices in these countries.
