Currently children are being diagnosed with ASD at early ages. There is a nationwide emphasis on providing these children with early intervention services in order to improve functioning and outcomes. In this study, the relationship between autism symptoms, age, adaptive behavior, and amount of early intervention services received to autism severity and presentation in these children at school age is examined. The implications of the findings are discussed.
