Apport(s) du programme PACT au développement des fonctions communicatives chez les enfants porteurs de TSA

Abstract : Objective : The aim of this exploratory study is to analyze the evolution of the sociocommunicative profile of French children with autism who benefited from the first 6 months of the PACT intervention. It is expected that this therapeutic program targeting parental sensitivity and responsiveness to child communication will improve early social communication skills for these children.
Method : 6 children with autism were assessed using the ECSP at the beginning and the end of the 6-month intervention to compare their progress. Parent-child shared attention time was also measured at the beginning, middle and end of the study.
Results : Statistical analyses reported a significant improvement of total group scores. Only the MAC behavior showed a significant improvement. There was also a significant increase in parent-child shared attention.
Conclusion : Our results are consistent with the primary objective of the PACT program, which is to improve parentchild dyadic shared attention time. The ECSP is an appropriate tool to measure the evolution of the children’s socio-communicative profile over a period of 6 months. Our outcomes define a new therapeutic target to the program : improvement of joint attention. In spite of a small sample and numerous methodological biases the study should be continued in order to confirm the relevance of the use of this program in French hospital services.
