Kadiant Published Research

Kadiant team members strive to enable individuals with Autism to live their absolute best lives. We believe that to become the # 1 provider of services to individuals with Autism we need to deliver the best client experience, the best team member experience and the best clinical outcomes. Positive clinical outcomes can be reached when our treatment is data driven and evidenced-based. Kadiant team members consume the research literature to ensure best and innovative practices are incorporated into treatment, and further, Kadiant team members are part of the scientific community by giving back, by producing innovative research themselves.  Below you will find a list with some of the studies conducted by Kadiant team members over the years.
