What type of classes are most beneficial for preschoolers with Autism?

A new study from the University of Pennsylvania, reported in Daily Rx, looked at the development of language skills of preschoolers with Autism placed in three types of classes: inclusionary classrooms (with normally developing peers), in classes intended for children with disabilities, and in Autism specific classes.  Results suggested that inclusion with normally developing peers and ASD specific programs tended to support better language development, while classes for mixed disabilities did not, however the results were dependent on the individual child, as well.
