The Emperor's New Clothes: Eclecticism in Autism Treatment
Dillenburger, Karola
Research in Autism Spectrum Disorders, v5 n3 p1119-1128 Jul-Sep 2011
Increasingly, Applied Behaviour Analysis (ABA) is internationally recognised as the scientific basis for teaching and treatment in Autism Spectrum Disorders. Yet, many governments and professionals across Europe promote an eclectic model as more child-centred and pragmatic. This paper addresses the issues of eclecticism and ABA by exploring how misinformation stands in the way of evidence-based procedures that are truly unified, practical, and child-centred. (Contains 2 figures.)
