A number of governmental agencies and expert review groups have begun to examine those interventions that are most costly and time intensive. These have been described as comprehensive treatment models (rather than focused interventions) because of the unique characteristics related to some of these features (Wong et al., 2013). AOTA, the Department of Human Services, and others receive a lot of questions from practitioners and families about some of these interventions that have been used in practice and thus, it seemed appropriate to conduct a review of the research evidence.
