Internship Description: While many therapies for autism exist, only a couple of dozen have the distinction of being “evidence based” or show any measureable amount of efficacy in a controlled environment. Recent systematic reviews and summaries of these systematic reviews provide thorough, detailed and highly descriptive information about these interventions, but they are directed at professional and clinician audiences, not lay audiences. The goal of this internship will be to review the existing information about evidence based interventions, update the literature with additional information, and provide a mockup of a website that Autism Speaks will host to display the information in a user friendly way. The intern is expected to have knowledge of behavioral and pharmacological interventions for autism, access to a library to retrieve scientific literature, and be comfortable talking with parents and clinicians. This is a non-paid, part-time opportunity.
