There is a wealth of evidence detailing the efficacy of Applied Behavior Analysis in the treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorders. However, the existing research knowledge base on the use of this intervention in this population in regions outside of the United States and Europe is far more modest. In particular, there is minimal data on the efficacy of Applied Behavior Analysis in the treatment of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders residing in regions of greater China (e.g., the People’s Republic of China, Hong Kong). A review of the available literature pertaining to studies of local service programs and supporting policies are presented, accompanied by the discussions of clinical and research implications of applying behavior change strategies among the Autism Spectrum Disorder populations in China and Hong Kong.
