The Drama and Trauma of Creating Policies on Autism: Critical Issues To Consider in the New Millennium.
Feinberg, Edward; Vacca, John
Focus on Autism and Other Developmental Disabilities, v15 n3 p130-37 Fall 2000
Factors that make autism a vexing public policy issue are identified, including incidence increases, lack of consensus on etiology and methodology for clinical intervention, coincidence of the age of diagnosis with the upper age limit of early intervention programs, a shift to a family-centered decision-making paradigm, and litigation.
