In the UK, seven participants were interviewed (five professionals and two parents of children with autism).

Marked cultural and policy differences were found in the delivery of ABA-based early interventions for children with autism in the UK and China, e.g., home vs school programmes. The delivery of effective intervention programmes should accommodate issues arising from different cultural backgrounds is necessary for.
