The number of available ICT applications (i.e. eHealth) to support individuals with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) has increased dramatically in recent years. In parallel, also the number of scientific studies in this area increases steadily. However, the applied method in these studies, with the Randomized Controlled Trial traditionally seen as the highest possible standard, is often not suitable for these rapidly changing applications. Alternative standards for eHealth research are not yet available. In the current article recommendations are put forward about how to shape these alternatives. It is made clear that there is a strong interplay between the design, implementation and evaluation of eHealth, which makes it impossible to separate the effectiveness of a certain application from the context in which the technological intervention is applied. To successfully introduce eHealth in the support of individuals with ASD, it is important to develop research guidelines that focus on the daily practice in which they are applied. © University of Groningen Press.
