Abstract

OBJECTIVE:

To investigate the effect of acupuncture combined behavior intervention on children with autism.

METHODS:

Patients were treated by "Jin's three-needling" as the main measure with the assistance of behavior intervention, and the changes were compared among the three groups (29 cases in combination group, 15 cases in acupuncture group and 10 cases in intervention group) before and after treatment of various factors and scores estimated by the autism behavior checklist (ABC) and autism development checklist (ADC).

RESULTS:

In the combination group, the total scores of ABC and most factors of ABC including body movement, social communication and language factor were improved significantly after treatment (P < 0.01), but there was no significant changes in sense factor and daily life self-caring factor (P > 0.05). Comparison of most items of ADC before and after treatment also showed significant difference (P < 0.01).
