Abstract: In 1994, Sophia University Young Autism Project (SU-YAP) embarked on an early intensive behavioral intervention (EIBI) in young children with autism in Tokyo, Japan. SU-YAP is now one of the replication sites for UCLA Young Autism Project. In 2004, some members of SU-YAP established the Nakayoshi Kids Station (NKS), a private institute which provides parents and children with autism with EIBI based on UCLA-YAP. The NKS programs consist of vocal language and AAC programs including PECS and the Reading & Writing Program (Lovaas & Lovaas, 1999) for young children with autism, social skills training for groups of children with high-functioning autism, after-school group activities for k-3 students who graduated from EIBI, series of parent training consisting of lectures and practicum, group consultations with parents who independently conducting parent-directed EIBI at home, workshops for groups of parents living in distant cities from Tokyo, novice therapists training for students who want to learn basic ABA knowledge and skills and work as members of NKS treatment team. We will present a description of our services and some outcome data from our interventions. We will also provide Japanese students living in the U.S with opportunities to know how EIBI programs are operating in Japan.
