Practice guidelines for rehabilitation of autism spectrum disorders

Title: Practice guidelines for rehabilitation of autism spectrum disorders
Edition: Original
Classification: Standard guideline
Field: Treatment
Countries and regions: China
Guidelines users: Clinicians and staff of organizations involved in autism rehabilitation
Evidence classification method: 1. Evidence evaluation (1) Systematic review can answer clinical questions, and if AMSTAR2 (systematic review methodology quality evaluation tool) has high evaluation quality, it will evaluate whether the systematic review needs to be updated. If it does not need to be updated, it will be directly adopted. If it needs to be updated, it will include the latest research evidence in the recent 5 years for updating. (2) If the quality of the systematic evaluation is low or fails to answer the PICO questions of this guideline, the systematic evaluation will be re-conducted based on the existing original research evidence. 2. Grading of evidence The quality of evidence was rated using the GRADE method (high, medium, low, very low). Three escalation factors (large effect size, negative bias, and dose-effect relationship) and five degradation factors (risk of bias, inconsistency, indirection, imprecision, and publication bias) were considered. 3. Evidence recommendation The recommendation intensity involved patients, clinicians and policy makers, and was divided into two levels: strong recommendation and weak recommendation. Based on the available evidence, it is strongly recommended if the clinician is very certain that the benefits outweigh or outweigh the risks and burdens; Based on available evidence, it is a weak recommendation if the clinician believes that the benefits, risks, and burdens are fairly balanced, or if there is significant uncertainty about the degree of benefits and risks.
