Matson, Johnny L.; Adams, Hilary L.; Williams, Lindsey W.; Rieske, Robert D.
Research in Autism Spectrum Disorders, v7 n3 p466-474 Mar 2013

Unfortunately, while there are effective and well-researched methods, many of the techniques that parents use have no empirical support. These interventions are expensive, take up valuable time, and in some cases are dangerous. How bad is this problem, how did the field get here, and what are potential solutions? This review covers this important but infrequently discussed topic.
