Abstract

The present study compared cultural differences in the UK and China in relation to Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA)-based interventions for children with autism. In the UK, seven participants were interviewed (five professionals and two parents of children with autism). In China, eight participants took part in interviews (five professionals and three parents). 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.
