Well, to get rid of the stubborn spam--sorry--here's a highly recommended paper from Jake Burack and colleagues--it should be free I can retire now for sure! Or maybe not.

Among other things, this paper is a reminder that autism research--if you actually read it--is much more complex and interesting than are the popular narratives about autism or about autism research. Which is another way of saying that autistics are far more complex and interesting than those (loud) popular narratives claim.

 If the these behaviorist advocates admit autism is a neurological disorder, they will have to admit a lifetime of work is not just wrong but grossly abusive to the people these therapies were supposed to help. Not only that, they may be sued by families whose children became traumatized through therapy.

It's not about money, or progress it is about keeping themselves relevant the expanding knowledge of what is biochemical and what is neurological, and what is a real threat to their profession. Treatments are no longer determined to be hours and hours of introspection and behavioral adjustment.

 Freudianism, inner personality issues, as the cause of health problems has been losing support and belief for years. ABA and behavioral conditioning is no longer automatically accepted for every issue any more.

 Autistic people are now almost their only source of patients, with no ability to complain or have their need mets this is an event horizon a horror where the most disabled are exploited by the medical profession, to justify their therapies.

It's about keeping an outdated Speciality in practice. They may as well feel the bumps on the heads of autistic people and then name a treatment.
