This presentation will show findings from a set of meta-analyses of family support intervention research based on a recently published book identifying evidence based practices in this arena. Both group and single subject design effect sizes are reported on several kinds of practices for supporting families including psychoeducational groups, multiple component treatments, and behavioral parent training programs. Limitations in the evidence base and directions for future research will be pointed out. In all the evidence from the past 30 years of work in this field shows encouraging growth in established ways to support families in specific ways at least for the short term. Newly available computer programs have been used to perform meta analyses of single subject design studies in a way that allows for meaningful effect size analyses. 1. Attendees will understand the use of meta-analysis for characterizing collections of research. 2. Attendees will identify evidence based practices for supporting families of individuals with intellectual disability or autism. 3. Attendees will understand the strengths and limitations of this body of research.
