This isn't about vaccines. Such studies like these are important for parents to know about, since everyone with autism is different, not all children will ever benefit for the same therapies. Some who have severe autism, SIT will not be much benefit to them. Another reason why results would vary is due to individual therapists. There is no one standard of SIT treatment over all, per state. And if the therapist doesn't make a connection to the child, the therapy isn't going to have good results.
Bottom line, pick interventions carefully, don't rely solely on the educational system to provide it, and question what the therapists plans are. They should be collecting data and sending reports of progress every 60 days.
