The second phase of the National Standards Project (NSP2) provides an update to the summary of empirical intervention literature evaluated by Phase 1 of the National Standards Project (or NSP1) published in 2009.

Nationally recognized experts in autism, as well as other leaders representing diverse fields of study, were involved in both phases of the National Standards Project and guided the process of evaluation.
