Description of intervention(s) / exposure
The Baby-AICES intervention was developed by the study team using existing knowledge of typical and atypical social communication development, human and non-human primate studies of early life predictors of later social communication skills, and evidence based strategies for promoting early social engagement in the infant. The theoretical premise of the Baby-AICES program is that a responsive communication partner who is sensitive to a baby’s developmental stage and abilities provides the optimal environment to nurture the social and communication development of the baby. Similar to the iBASIS-VIPP therapy framework, Baby-AICES employs a ‘carer-mediated’ delivery mechanism and the use of video feedback to coach parents to understand the social and communication cues of their baby, and to respond in ways that have been shown to promote further communication.

The therapy program involves one antenatal session in the third pregnancy trimester, and 10 postnatal sessions from when the infant is 4 weeks to 8 months of age. The antenatal session is a single psychoeducation group seminar (3 hours in length), hosted in a community clinic, with an ideal group size of 4 - 6 sets of parents. The group is led by a facilitator, who introduces the therapy rationale and requirements, demonstrates the range of a newborn’s skills and capacities, illustrates how influential parents are to babies’ social and communication development; and prepares parents to learn their baby’s communication behaviours from birth. A range of videos are used to highlight these key points.

The postnatal sessions commence when the infant is 4 weeks of age, and there are 7 core sessions up to when the baby is 5 months of age. Each session is approximately 1 hour in length, and will be delivered by either child health nurses or speech pathologists. The sessions commence at fortnightly intervals (4 weeks to 10 weeks) but then progress to monthly intervals (3 months to 5 months). Each core session focuses on a single theme, based on the developmental stage of the baby. The first core session involves the delivery of the Newborn Behavioural Observation (NBO) system, a structured set of activities designed to help the clinician and parent to observe the baby’s unique behavioural capacities. The NBO consists of 18 activities designed to direct the caregiver’s attention toward the infant’s behaviours. The items include observations of the infant's capacity to habituate to light and sound, the quality of motor tone and activity level, the capacity for self regulation, and the infant's visual, auditory, and social-interactive capacities. There is currently low-quality evidence that the NBO improves sensitive and contingent responding of parents during infant interactions. Core sessions 2 to 7 all follow a similar structure, consisting of an initial review of the baby’s development since the previous session, the filming of a video of the parent and baby interacting, review of the video with the parent, and a summary discussion of the session.

The video recordings of parent-baby interactions are built around everyday activities for newborns (e.g., feeding, settling, nappy changes and dressing) and infants (singing nursery rhymes, playing with toys, and sharing books). The program allows a high degree of flexibility when identifying filming contexts, particularly in the early postnatal sessions. The filming context is jointly agreed by the parent and clinician, and appropriate to the baby’s state of alertness and the baby’s needs at the time. The clinician video records the parent interacting with their baby. During filming, the clinician observes the dyad and, being mindful of the session theme, identifies key messages to be communicated during the video review. The clinician then watches the video through themself, prior to reviewing the video with parents, while the parent attends to the baby. The parent and clinician then review the video in its entirety, with the clinician pausing the video to highlight key moments of the interaction. A range of video feedback techniques are used by the clinician to help the parent reflect on his/her interactions with the baby, the responses of the baby to the interaction, and how they might tailor their own behaviours to optimise the interactions.

Following the completion of the core sessions when the baby is 5 months of age, there are three focused sessions at monthly intervals which serve to reinforce key interaction strategies important for the individual dyad, as well as target any areas of infant social communication development where there may be an identified concern or difficulty. The sessions are structured similarly to the core sessions.

Trial therapists will complete a four-day training course, delivered by the developers of the intervention, which will include theoretical background, clinical observations, and practical opportunities. Trial therapists will receive fortnightly supervision by the lead clinician for the trial (MR), who will also coordinate across-site therapist meetings. All interventions sessions will be videotaped, and a random selection of 5% of videotapes will be independently rated for fidelity using a scale developed for this trial. Compliance in the ‘treatment’ condition will be monitored via a case report form completed by the clinician at each therapy session.

Comparator / control treatment
Participants in the control group will not receive any intervention by the trial therapists. Given that developmental interventions for newborns is not current standard practice in the locations of the two study sites (Perth and Melbourne, Australia), we anticipate that the majority of clinical contact for this group will be the standard developmental monitoring carried out by community nursing services in these areas. All contact with clinical services will be recorded.

Study design
Purpose of the study
Treatment
Allocation to intervention
Randomised controlled trial
Procedure for enrolling a subject and allocating the treatment (allocation concealment procedures)
Eligibility interviews will be conducted by a research staff member, prior to treatment allocation. Once an individual is deemed eligible to take part, and have provided consent to do so, the participant's details will be forwarded to the project manager, who will randomise the family into treatment or control groups (based on computer algorithm).

The trial therapists will be housed separately to study investigators and research assistants conducting the assessments sessions, and will also attend separate meetings. The assessment sessions will be conducted by blinded assessors, and be structured so as to avoid inadvertent unblinding of the treatment group to the assessors. The assessments will take place in a different setting, and using different materials to the therapy sessions, which will minimise the risk of a familiarity effect for those children in the treatment group.
Methods used to generate the sequence in which subjects will be randomised (sequence generation)
Randomisation, via minimisation, will be conducted separately for the Perth and Melbourne sites. Randomisation of individual mothers will be completed in batches every 4 to 6 weeks; the number of mothers attending the antenatal (intervention) session will be dependent on the number of mothers enrolled within the batch and the outcome of the minimisation allocation (groups will likely range from n = 2 to n = 6). Allocation of participants to the Treatment or Control group will be by minimisation, stratified by the number of the mother’s previous children (0 vs 1 or more), family ‘liability’ level (’high liability’ vs ‘moderate liability’), and social disadvantage (greater than or equal to the 40th percentile vs less than the 40th percentile of the Index of Relative Socio-economic Disadvantage, based on postcode).

Statistical methods / analysis
The primary outcome variable at immediate treatment endpoint (9-month) assessment is the non-directiveness subscale of the Manchester Assessment of Caregiver-Child Interaction (MACI). Linear regression will be used to model the effect of the intervention (independent variable: treatment vs control) on this outcome, with adjustment for the number of the mother’s previous children (0 vs 1 or more), family ‘liability’ level (’high liability’ vs ‘moderate liability’), social disadvantage (greater than or equal to the 40th percentile vs less than the 40th percentile of the Index of Relative Socio-economic Disadvantage, based on postcode), offspring chronological age at assessment (weeks), and the group size for participants that were enrolled into the treatment arm of the trial. Further adjustment variables may include sex of the child, maternal age, and other variables identified to be unbalanced across groups during the analysis. The beta coefficient and 95% confidence interval for the intervention term will be reported. If model fit is deemed poor or the assumptions of the model are violated, an ordinal regression model with the same adjustment variables will be explored; here, the odds ratio and 95% confidence interval for the intervention term will be reported.

Secondary analysis will include examining three other MACI subscales (caregiver sensitive responsiveness, infant attentiveness, and infant positive affect) together using a MANCOVA approach, with the intervention (treatment vs control) as the independent variable of interest and adjustments made for the number of the mother’s previous children, the degree of familial liability for autism, socioeconomic status, infant chronological age (weeks), and group size. If the MANCOVA test suggests between group difference exist, models for individual subscales may be pursued. Secondary outcomes that will also be analysed include Autism Observation Scale for Infants, Mullen Scales of Early Learning, Preschool Language Scale – 5th edition, Infant Behavior Questionnaire-Revised, MacArthur-Bates Communicative Development Inventory: Words and Gestures Form, Ages and Stages Questionnaire – 3rd edition, Ages and Stages Questionnaire: Social Emotional – 2nd edition, Communication and Symbolic Behaviour Scales Developmental Profile – Infant Toddler, Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales – 3rd edition, Diamond Maternal Reflective Functioning Scale, Parenting Sense of Competence scale, and Perceived Maternal Parental Self-Efficacy using similar statistical methodologies to those outlined above, as appropriate.

The primary outcome variable at the follow-up (24-month assessment) is the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule - 2nd edition (ADOS-2). The ADOS-2 is a semi-structured, standardised assessment of communication, social interaction, play, and restricted and repetitive behaviours. Linear regression will be used to model the effect of the intervention (treatment vs control, the independent variable of interest) on ADOS-2; the model will be adjusted for the number of the mother’s previous children, the degree of familial liability for autism, socioeconomic status, and infant chronological age (weeks), and group size. The beta coefficient and 95% confidence interval for the intervention term will be reported.

Secondary outcomes that will also be analysed include Manchester Assessment of Caregiver-infant Interaction, Mullen Scales of Early Learning, Preschool Language Scale – 5th edition, Early Childhood Behavior Questionnaire-Revised, MacArthur-Bates Communicative Development Inventory: Words and Gestures Form, Ages and Stages Questionnaire – 3rd edition, Ages and Stages Questionnaire: Social Emotional – 2nd edition, Communication and Symbolic Behaviour Scales Developmental Profile – Infant Toddler, Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scales – 3rd edition, Diamond Maternal Reflective Functioning Scale, Parenting Sense of Competence scale, and Perceived Maternal Parental Self-Efficacy using similar statistical methodologies to those outlined above, as appropriate.

Summary
Brief summary
Parent-child interactions comprise one of the most profoundly influential experiences in a child’s development, and the quality of these interactions during early infancy in particular can have a lasting impact on neurodevelopment. This randomised controlled trial is a two-arm (Treatment vs Control), single blind (assessor) randomised controlled trial to test the efficacy of a new intervention designed to promote parent sensitivity and responsiveness to their newborns with a family liability for Autism Spectrum Disorder. We hypothesise that the newborn intervention will decrease parental directiveness and increase parental sensitivity during parent-infant interactions when measured when the baby is 9 months of age, and decreases the severity of autistic symptoms, and improve a range of child development outcomes, when measured when the baby is 2 years of age.
